Speaker: Dr. Jen Pechal, Assistant Professor, Department of Entomology – Michigan State University
We will discuss how the life history traits of insects and other arthropods can be used in a variety of forensic cases. Be forewarned that some of the cases discussed will involve pictures of decomposition, thus if you are squeamish please attend at your own discretion. Adequate warning will be provided in advance for the more gory bits! Anyone with an interest in entomology or forensics is welcomed to attend and learn more about the utility of these amazing insects.
