Description After near-extirpation in the early 20th century, beaver populations are increasing throughout many parts of North America. Simultaneously, there is an emerging interest in employing beaver activity for stream restoration in arid and semi-arid environments (collectively, `drylands'), where streams and adjacent riparian ecosystems are expected to face heightened challenges from climate change and human population growth. However, despite growing interest in reintroduction programs,... Thesis (Master's)--University of Washington, 2013
