An examination of the traditional and emerging uses of insects in forensic situations amply shows the breadth of knowledge required by entomologists, opportunities for further development of the field, and in parallel, the potential intellectual capital available from scientific studies of insects and their arthropod relatives for applications to the courts.

Traditionally, both civil and criminal law have benefited from the entomologist’s knowledge of insect taxonomy, physiology, and behavior...
