More reports on the Scottish beaver trial published

A news release today states that four new SNH monitoring reports on the Scottish beaver trial have been published. The reports cover monitoring the ecology of beavers and other riparian mammals, potential impacts of beavers on lichens and two species of Odonata, and how beaver activity might affect the fluvial geomorphology and habitat of the streams and rivers that flow through the study area. The reports can be downloaded from the SNH website. Further reports, including one on the work of the Tayside Beaver Study Group, will be published over the next few weeks. A report from the Beaver Salmonid Working Group was published at the end of January. All reports will be sent to the Scottish Government who will make a decision of the future of beavers in Scotland in May or soon thereafter.
