Forensic Microscopy: An Introduction is a clear and accessible overview of the many applications where microscopy is used in forensic science. These include microscopical techniques to determine a profile of physical characteristics of traces such as, for example, the fragments of fibres shed by clothing, which can be transferred from one person to another in the course of contact. This book provides a simple guide to the way these tests on trace evidence such as hair, fibres, paint and glass are carried out and gives an outline of the theory upon which they are based. Emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of these techniques and the way they can be used as evidence. Step-by-step coverage of the most commonly used techniques is provided, accompanied by examples used to illustrate the various points. This text places forensic microscopy at the forefront of forensic analysis and clearly illustrates its usefulness and applicability through discussion of the range and variation of evidence types to which different techniques can be applied.
