Forensic entomology is the study of insects associated with a dead body in order to estimate the elapsed time since death. This talk will explain how insects can be used to estimate time of death, as well as other factors such as position and presence of wounds, and analysis of poaching cases. True case histories will be used to illustrate the science.
