The environmental and botanical data in forensic science has a long history dating to at least the early 20th century. Mark will be describing his work as a forensic ecologist and the ways in which vegetation and other forms of environmental evidence can be used to help understand criminal activities, and some of the basic investigatory skills that may be used at a crime scene. It comes as a surprise to many that vegetation can be used to help understand how a crime was committed. Please note, some aspects of this course may be challenging to some participants as it will be necessary to discuss scenarios involving the ecology of the decomposition of human remains.
