2022_Beaver_Durme: Research on the impact of management actions on beaver behaviour

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

This research tracks movement of beavers before and after dyke reinforcements will be carried out along the Durme river in Lokeren. The study primarily uses VHF-telemetery, since earlier research on the Dyle proved this a suitable method for monitoring habitat use in beavers over a longer period of time. Since this method is labour and time consuming, a field test will be carried out using acoustic telemetry alongside VHF to gain additional info on behavioral patterns.
