The Beaver Restoration Guidebook
The goal of this guidebook is to provide an accessible, useful resource for anyone involved in using beaver to restore streams, floodplains, wetlands, and riparian areas. It provides a practical synthesis of the best available science, an overview of management techniques, and case studies from throughout the western U.S.
During the winter and spring of 2015, five interactive workshops focused on the use of beaver in aquatic restoration were conducted to solicit input from land owners/managers, restoration funders, reviewers, and practitioners actively involved in beaver restoration and management.
A Guide to Freshwater Fishes of Oregon by Douglas F. Markle is now available. It is the first authoritative guide to native and non-native freshwater fishes found in Oregon. This book combines the rigorous science of Oregon State University's Dr. Markle with beautiful illustrations by renowned artist Joseph R. Tomelleri.
