Dr Peter Serov BSc, BSc (Hons), PhD

(Owner and Director, Australasia Operations)

Peter is an aquatic and groundwater ecologist, and invertebrate taxonomist who has worked in a range of environments including surface aquatic, marine, terrestrial, and groundwater ecosystems. He specialises in the ecology and identification of stygofauna (groundwater fauna), and is recognised as the Australian authority on the Syncarida (both the Anaspidacea and Bathynellacea). This order of freshwater Crustacea is a major component of groundwater fauna biodiversity and has numerous short range endemic species. He also specialises in the ecological valuation and preservation of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems and other High Conservation Value Aquatic Ecosystems. Peter has been a major contributor in the recognition of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (GDE’s) in NSW and has also been intrinsically involved in the development and implementation of NSW legislation involving Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems and High Conservation Value Rivers (HCV). He has worked in all states of Australia on stygofauna and aquatic invertebrate taxonomy and ecology.
