Abstract

Satellite imagery was used to map dramatic increases in area impounded by beaver activity between 1984 and 1993 in the Roanoke River floodplain of eastern North Carolina. The results were analyzed within a geographic information system to examine patterns of landscape use by, and landscapes changes resulting from, beaver activity. Localized beaver activity may result in decreased forest regeneration owing to the extended flooding caused by beaver impoundments and the growth of shrub-herbaceous beaver meadows along the saturated fringes of beaver impoundments
