    This chapter introduces an important dimension in building our understanding of how riparian systems function -- people. The human dimensions of natural resource management concerns how people value and interact with these ecosystems, their processes and functions. People as users, managers, owners, or involved citizens are integral components of riparian ecosystems and are interconnected with the physical and biological dimensions in many ways.
