Description:

Providing valuable information and instructions on what to search for when recovering entomological evidence and how to handle items found at a crime scene, Forensic Entomology presents the basics on insects of forensic importance as well as the principles of using insects to determine the time of death. With over 100 additional color photos and an expanded reference appendix, this second edition features new chapters on standardization in forensic entomological analysis, climatology and thermoregulation in insects, and insect identification including dichotomous keys. The chapter on DNA has also been significantly enhanced to address molecular techniques and genetics markers.
