In every ecosystem there are keystone species, species that build ecotones, binding communities together, their very presence allowing other species to thrive.

In Northern California, where I live, the keystone species are live oak trees, coyotes, lizards and eelgrass in the bay.

The publishing world also has "keystone species." And in the California branch -- and in the world of poets, where I also live -- Lawrence Ferlinghetti was a big one.
