Arthropod successionin Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and compared development of protophormia terraenovae (R. -D.) from Beringia and the Great Lakes Region
Forensic medicocriminal entomology is used in the estimation of post-mortem intervals in death investigations, by means of arthropod succession patterns and the development rates of individual insect species. The purpose ...
Stability of heroin metabolites and oxycodone in rat hair and liver during decomposition
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of soft tissue decomposition on the stability of drugs incorporated in hair antemortem. Two burial trials were conducted: in the first trial, rats were administered ...
Biochemical alteration of gravesoils between season and soil type
Decomposition chemistry refers to the biochemical degradation processes which occur in soft tissue as decomposition proceeds. This study aims to investigate the relationship between the release of decomposition fluids into ...
Physical and chemical analysis of pig carcass decomposition in a fine sand
The development and improvement of methods used for the estimation of the postmortem interval (PMI) is a common area of research in forensic science. This research was conducted to physically and chemically analyze pig ...
Electrophysiological responses of Chrysomya rufifacies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) to active volatile organic compounds released by human and pig decomposition
Forensic entomology is an important discipline which utilizes the developmental and behavioural patterns of insects which colonize decomposing tissue in a medicolegal context, most commonly to determine the post-mortem ...
