Pierre Horwitz

Professor of Environmental Sciences, Edith Cowan University
Pierre is a limnologist – he loves studying inland freshwater wetlands and their aquatic fauna, especially invertebrates.  Organic rich soils – peats – are another passion.

Raised in Perth, Western Australia, Pierre completed a doctorate on freshwater crayfish at the University of Tasmania in 1986. Since then he has extensively researched, taught and written about south-western Australia’s wetlands and developed an extraordinary body of knowledge. Pierre’s other great interests include ecosystem health and social ecology which point to his current role as Co-Director of Edith Cowan University’s Centre for People, Place and the Planet.
