    Rivers as Resources      The way we humans make use of our rivers cannot be separated from discussions about ecology. We are, after all, part of the river ecosystem. In fact, our influence on the river ecosystem is much greater than that of any of what we call keystone species.      Keystone predators have so much influence on a system that their removal, or their addition, to an ecosystem can completely change the make-up of that system.
