Insects of the Order Diptera (Arthropoda: Insecta) are well known in the medical and veterinary fields: due to the diversity of their eating habits, many species can carry pathogens or cause myiasis. Necrophagy, on the other hand, assures them of notorious importance in the forensic context. The Calliphoridae family (Insecta, Diptera, Muscomorpha), with more than a thousand known specie...
Insects belong to Diptera Order gain importance in the medical and veterinary fields when cause myiasis and/or transmit a wide range of pathogens. Also, due to be among the first organisms to colonize a carcass, may have relevance in the forensics. Regarding to the last aspect, some of the contributions that the knowledge of insects can bring are associated with the estimation of postmo...
Insects and other arthropods when associated with decomposing bodies, can provide relevant information to the progress of an investigative process. Among the several application in forensic entomology are the estimation of postmortem interval (PMI), investigation on the cause of death, in particular when is involved cases where the victim consume toxic substances. Factors such as temper...
