Product Description


Canadian professor Glynnis Hood's fantastic new book, The Beaver Manifesto just arrived in the mail today. I started reading the small volume immediately, and found both the writing and the message most engrossing.―Rhonda Winter, EcoLocalizer


Every once in awhile, a writer comes upon a book she wishes she had written. For me, this is The Beaver Manifesto, by Glynnis Hood…. Hood’s writing is light and accessible. She covers all the beaver bases. Her book is small, compact, and easy to read. The Readers Review

Glynnis Hood has worked in various protected areas throughout western Canada and into the Subarctic region and boreal plains. She served 19 years with Parks Canada as national park warden, with postings at Jasper, Waterton Lakes, Wood Buffalo and Elk Island national parks. She completed her master’s degree work on human impacts on grizzly bear habitat availability, and her Ph.D. research on beaver ecology and management. She is now an associate professor in Environmental Science at the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus. She currently lives in the Beaver Hills region of east-central Alberta, with three beaver lodges as her closest neighbours.

Excellent! May 13 2013
By Bronte fan - Published on
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!

info on Beaver situation Dec 1 2011
By moni517 - Published on
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.
