The Science of Forensic Entomology
By David B Rivers & Gregory Dahlem
Wiley-Blackwell; 1 edition, 2014
Forensic entomology is one of the newest sub-disciplines to be recognized by international judicial systems in countries located on every continent. Arguably it deals with the most unpleasant evidence of all disciplines—fly maggots that feed on a corpses. Though this text provides coverage of the three sub-fields of Forensic entomology—Urban, Stored Product, and Medicocriminal—it is the latter that is the core of the book.

The Science of Forensic Entomology builds a foundation of biological and entomological knowledge that equips the student to be able to understand and resolve questions concerning the presence of specific insects at a crime scene, in which the answers require deductive reasoning, seasoned observation, reconstruction and experimentation—features required of all disciplines that have hypothesis testing at its core. Each chapter addresses topics that delve into the underlying biological principles and concepts relevant to the insect biology that forms the bases for using insects in matters of legal importance.

This handbook provides a valuable reference for everyone interested in the study of flies, both beginners and experienced dipterists. Since the first edition appeared in 1978, there have been considerable advances in knowledge of Diptera, and new techniques and equipment used in their study have developed. The Handbook has been fully updated and new subjects have been added so that it has grown substantially to more than twice the size of the first edition.
