Use of space and movement patterns in monogamous adult Eurasian beavers (Castor fiber
The European beaver (Castor fiber
) was once widespread throughout mainland Britain.
Beaver (Castor fiber
) is represented by one femur, and hare (Lepes sp.) by five bones (2 metatarsal and 3 metacarpal/metatarsal bones).
Hunted to extinction in Britain in the 19th century, the European beaver (Castor fiber
) was recently re-introduced into the area, where it is now flourishing.

Beavers are large rodents (up to 65 lb [30 kg]), and there are two species, Castor fiber
in Eurasia and C.
But Castor fiber
seems to do just fine without this variation, says Hans Ellegren from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala.
Field anaesthetic and surgical techniques for implantation of intraperitoneal radio transmitters in Eurasian beavers Castor fiber
(2005) also suggest that other factors, besides basic habitat resources, such as cooperative breeding, delayed dispersal and intra-group competition influence group territory strategies and specifically believe historical settlement patterns and reproductive success can shape Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber
) spatial organization.
