The use of forensic entomology has become established as a global science. Recent efforts in the field bridge multiple disciplines including, but not limited to, microbiology, chemistry, genetics, and systematics as well as ecology and evolution. The first book of its kind, Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers provides an inclusive summary of worldwide research on this body of knowledge that integrates aspects of a wide range of scientific realms.

The book first reviews the history of forensic entomology, its accomplishments, and future challenges in nations around the world. It then provides perspectives of other scientific disciplines that are shaping the questions being addressed in the field. With an emphasis on medicolegal investigations, the book:

Provides countrywide and regionally relevant syntheses on the current state and future of forensic entomology worldwidePresents insight from up-and-coming entomologists who offer new perspectives on the field while acknowledging their predecessors' contributions and foundational workHighlights both established and newly emerging areas of forensic entomology research that provide the foundation and future of this exciting disciplineDiscusses the success of forensic entomology and identifies key challenges to current work and practiceSupplies an internationally cohesive perspective to emerging multidisciplinary dimensions and frontiers of forensic entomology

The book is designed to provide readers with a firm appreciation of the history of forensic entomology and the scientists who built its foundation in each of the countries presented. In doing so, it is destined to inspire new and exciting global collaboration among established researchers and newcomers to the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I found each of the chapters to be well-written. The editors succeeded in compiling much of the history, current state, and future of forensic entomology and its related fields for this book. Overall, I found Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers to be very informative. It is an overview of the state-of-the-art of forensic sciences related to medicolegal entomology. Anyone interested in studying forensic entomology could glean a great deal (the good and the bad) from reading this book."
-Susan V. Gruner, University of Florida, in Florida Entomologist
