From November 1984 through May 1985, trapping removed all resident beaver (Castor canadensis ) from 22 colonies on 4,000 contiguous acres of bottomland in southwest Tennessee. From June 1985 through September 1988, trapped-out colony sites were closely monitored, and 162 immigrating beavers were captured <1 month of recolonization. The average number of immigrants October through May was 46.4 beavers; however, from June through September mean immigration dropped significantly (P ≤ 0.05) to 5.5. More than 89% of all immigrants were ≤4 yr of age. Results suggested that beaver immigration into eradicated colony sites began soon after eradication and were seasonal. South. J. Appl. For. 19(3):127-130.
