Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers.pdf
This forensic entomology reference takes a global approach with case studies and contributions from six continents. Most of the research to date has been concentrated in Europe or North America. Traditional forensic entomology books have focused specifically on entomology as a field with very little mention of the other disciplines that influence forensic outcomes from an entomological prospective. This book bridges multiple disciplines including microbiology, chemistry, genetics, and systematics with forensic entomology. This groundbreaking book brings together hitherto largely ignored sources of previously unrelated new information in one place.
