Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A survey of Beaver sites based on winter food caches was conducted in Gatineau Park during the fall of 1973. A total of 472Beaver sites were surveyed| 125of those sites were actually occupied while 198others had been inhabited by Beavers in the few years preceeding 1973. The 127colonies counted during the survey showed a density of 0.36colony per km and approximately 650individuals. Each site was also classified according to its quality: 90of the 271 very high quality sites were occupied by Beavers during the fall of 1973| the remaining 181sites were still available for settling future colonies. Beavers were particularly abundant in the area of the Eardley Plateau which offers the best possibilities for settling new colonies or resettling existing ones.
