Eric Benbow edits new forensic entomology reference
Department of Entomology
Department of Entomology’s Eric Benbow has partnered with Jeffery Tomberlin as editors of “Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers.” This forensic entomology reference takes a global approach with case studies and contributions from leading authors representing 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 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. Largely ignored sources of previously unrelated new information are now together in one useful publication from CRC Press.
