A Guide to Beaver Architecture: Sticks and Mud Reconsidered documents the history of beaver architecture as recorded by the human animal and highlights cross-species exchange as a possible influence on the beaver's work. It includes documentation of unconventional beaver works, such as the beaver dam in North Dakota made entirely with coal and mud; the chewed stick and a pink T-shirt dam barricade at a Haliburton (Ontario) beaver sanctuary; and the "fallen log dam", which was constructed around a fallen log in Michigan.
