A laboratory companion to Forensic Science: An Introduction to Scientific and Investigative Techniquesand other undergraduate texts, this volume provides many basic, hands-on experiments that can be completed with inexpensive and accessible instrumentation, making this an ideal workbook for non-science majors used at both the high school and college level. This revised edition provides numerous new experiments in odontology, anthropology, archeology, chemistry, and trace evidence. The experiments cover all the typical tests including body fluid, soil, glass, fiber, ink, and hair. Experiments involving impression evidence, such as fingerprints, bite marks, footwear, and firearms are presented, and the use of digital and traditional photography and basic microscopy are also featured.
