about this item

It has been nearly 20 years since Haglund and Sorg introduced taphonomy to the forensic community as a dynamic, multidisciplinary approach to understanding postmortem change. In the past 2 decades, taphonomy has grown significantly in both its importance and its range of applications. This Second Edition reflects two decades of forensic taphonomy research and application. Fully updated with DNA implications, chemical variability in decomposition, microenvironments and a host of topics, the book includes over 50 chapters contributed by top scientists in the field and will serve as the quintessential, must-have resource for pathologists, death investigators, and forensic anthropologists.
