Decomposition & Succession

In forensic entomology, it is very crucial to learn about the association between insects and how they interact with decomposing human body. To simulate this association, a forensic entomologist consistently conducts decomposition studies by using animal carcasses. At UKM Forensics Simulation Site ( a.k.a the Body Farm!), I have conducted several observational studies on animal decomposition and record the succession of insects on the carcass.
