Book Description

Sept. 15 2011 An RMB Manifesto

Beavers are the great comeback story—a keystone species that survived ice ages, major droughts, the fur trade, urbanization and near extinction. Their ability to create and maintain aquatic habitats has endeared them to conservationists, but puts the beavers at odds with urban and industrial expansion. These conflicts reflect a dichotomy within our national identity. We place environment and our concept of wilderness as a key touchstone for promotion and celebration, while devoting significant financial and personal resources to combating "the beaver problem."

We need to rethink our approach to environmental conflict in general, and our approach to species-specific conflicts in particular. Our history often celebrates our integration of environment into our identity, but our actions often reveal an exploitation of environment and celebration of its subjugation. Why the conflict with the beaver? It is one of the few species that refuses to play by our rules and continues to modify environments to meet its own needs and the betterment of so many other species, while at the same time showing humans that complete dominion over nature is not necessarily achievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! May 13 2013
By Bronte fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent study on this keystone species. Insightful,thoughtful, academic approach to discussing the Beaver. Humorous at times - Glynnis Hood has spent much of her life studying this species from a historical and management standpoint - she truly understands the nature of these dear animals, and the benefits they produce for ecosystems around the globe! This book will hopefully elevate the beaver's importance as nature's engineer/architect/planner/contractor - all which they do for free! You will come away from this book with a greater appreciation and respect for the beaver!

3.0 out of 5 stars info on Beaver situation Dec 1 2011

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Some interesting facts about the Beaver and how important they are to the the well being of the planet. More info on how to keep them around and the population under control would be interesting. The book should be in a paper back version and at a cheaper price point.
