Increase In Beaver Impounded Water In Mississippi Over A Ten Year Period

An inventory of beaver (Castor canadensis) impounded water 0.4 ha and greater in area in Mississippi was conducted using the same technique as a survey made a decade earlier. The data revealed almost a 300% increase of beaver impounded areas. The increase indicates a probable yearly increase of impoundments of 11.5% per year.
