Kashal quoted in Bay Journal article on nature’s engineer

ESSIC / GEOL Associate Professor Sujay Kashal was quoted in a Bay Journal article during December 2015 entitled, “Leaving it to beavers: Communities make room for natural engineers.” The feature addressed how beavers contribute to water eco systems as habitat engineers.  Although often thought of as nuisance animals or pests, Kaushal noted that components of the stream restoration projects that he works on closely mimics the efforts of nature’s water resource engineer, the beaver.
