But, why 'Castor Community'?
Today’s two species of beaver (Eurasian, Castor fiber, and North American, Castor canadensis) are the only remaining members of a once much larger and diverse family of Castoridae, which dates back nearly 40 million years.
The beaver's scientific name, Castor, is descriptive of the castor glands which are located near the base of the tail which secrete a substance called castoreum.
