Ecosystem service

Beavers are sometimes termed ecosystem engineers - as they tramsform ecosystems impacting the surrounding environment. The positive impact of beaver services can be related to providing habitat for plants and animals as well as filtering and retention of water in the streams and rivers where they build their dams and lodges.
