Summary:
Insects and other arthropods found at a death scene can provide corroborating evidence regarding both the time and place of death, as well as possible antemortem and postmortem treatment of the victim. Nevertheless, most forensic investigators are not specially trained in entomology and, until now, no entomology reference has fully explored these subjects.

Abstract:

Insects and other arthropods found at a death scene can provide corroborating evidence regarding both the time and place of death, as well as possible antemortem and postmortem treatment of the victim. Nevertheless, most forensic investigators are not specially trained in entomology and, until now, no entomology reference has fully explored these subjects. Forensic Entomology: The Utility of Arthropods in Legal Investigations fills this void, providing valuable information and instruction to all forensic investigators, regardless of prior training, on what to search for - and how to handle items found - when recovering entomological evidence at a crime scene.--COVER.
