Reintroductions and Other Transplants

Reintroductions and Other Transplants

(p.169) Chapter 18 Reintroductions and Other Transplants
The Beaver

Dietland Müller-Schwarze

Cornell University Press

This chapter focuses on beaver reintroductions and other transplants. Both the Eurasian and North American beavers have been transplanted many times and in many parts of the world in order to reintroduce them where they had become extinct and to introduce them as “exotics” to new areas. At the present time, especially the Eurasian beaver is rapidly expanding both its populations and its overall range by artificial and natural recolonization. The purpose of most transplants has been to replenish depleted stocks or replace extirpated populations of the same species in parts of its former range. This chapter considers the decline and recovery of North American beaver stocks in New York's Adirondacks and in the American South as a result of, reintroduction and transplantation. It also discusses the movements of transplanted beavers and concludes by looking at beavers that have been introduced as exotic species.
