    In what aquatic ecosystems are NPP low and why? Rivers and streams due to inputs of dead organic matter from adjacent terrestrial ecosystems being an important source of energy input In aquatic ecosystems where is most of the organic carbon derived from in large rivers and lakes, compared to smaller streams and lakes? Senior Restoration Ecologist, Construction Manager - Biohabitats. Matt Koozer has 15 years' experience leading interdisciplinary design-build teams in water resources management and habitat restoration efforts throughout the Northwest. He has managed all phases of river, estuary, wetland and riparian restoration and management projects. Habitat is provided for migratory and resident waterfowl, wading birds, songbirds, aquatic species such as snails, mussels, and fish. Focal areas include both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Hundreds of projects have been completed including restoration of wetlands, longleaf pine, . The river runs km through four countries (Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, and China). It runs the entire length of Pakistan, and the River Indus basin forms 65% of the total country, with smaller rivers joining the course. The riverbanks have altered over geological times, and the delta has shifted westward.
