rivet popper hypothesis is a explanation to the threat of animals and plants. He has assumed that airplane is refers to ecosystem and airplane parts are refers to the species of an area. If everyone those who using the plane take rivets(species) to their homes, it may affect flight safety(proper functioning of the ecosystem ) and as more and more rivets are removed, the plane become dangerously weak over a period of time. Loss of rivets on the wings is obviously a more serious threat to flight safety than a loss of a few rivets on the seats. Soon airplane will get to very serious trouble. As the result the plane never be able to fly ( key species
of the ecosystem will also get to extent).
