Sketch a map of the beaver site, including the features mentioned above. Conclusions So far, what can we conclude? Is there enough fresh activity that it is clear that the site is inhabited? Can we infer the number of beavers here? Does a single individual, a pair, or a family live here? Are there young offspring, evidenced by small gnawing traces in wood or tracks in mud? Procedures 55 Implications • Did the beavers invest much in the infrastructure? Is it a site with a good food supply in terms of plant species and abundance?
