Places of movement

Transportation: We use rivers to move wastes away from us and to bring food and water to us. Rivers provide migratory corridors and breeding habitats for a variety of fish and wildlife. Riparian communities and the river itself help disperse seeds and spores, either directly or through animal activity. Human travel on or near rivers is recorded throughout history, but more recently we have engineered rivers to move barges and sea-going vessels through them.
