  River
A river conducts water by constantly flowing perpendicular to the elevation curve of its bed, thereby converting the positional energy of the water into kinetic energy.
Rivers begin at their source in higher ground, either rising from a spring, forming from glacial meltwater, flowing from a body of water such as a lake, or simply from damp, boggy places where the soil is waterlogged.
River management is an ongoing activity as rivers tend to 'undo' the modifications made by man. Dredged channels silt up, sluice mechanisms deteriorate with age, levees and dams may suffer seepage or catastrophic failure.

Upland and torrential rivers are fairly common in Africa for, although there are few large mountain chains, the elevated nature of the mass of the continent and the existence of individual massifs means that most rivers take their source in highland regions.
While many of the rivers draining the Rockies and the Coastal ranges are turbulent and encased in steep gorges, most streams are associated with floodplains and the 100 year flood area of the US is estimated by Sabol (1974) at 543 000 km² or 6 percent of the total land area of the Nation.

While river systems both large and small in the northeastern two-thirds of the continent appear to exemplify the tendency of low latitudes to be species rich, other South American rivers do not.
As denizens of rivers, streams, and lakes, the largest groups of endemic, or native, freshwater fishes in South America are relatively confined.
Taken together, the formation of Andean and other land barriers, the shifting courses of rivers, and sporadic incursions of ocean waters would have produced many opportunities for fish species to evolve as some populations were isolated from others and began to adapt to new conditions.
