Forensic Entemology

I've been going back on some old notes from quarter and came across a topic that Professor Latto mentioned briefly but didn't divulge on too much: forensic entomology. That is, the use of insects to analyze a corpse and other investigations. The following paper is a little old for the field (1992) but gave some great insight that was well laid out and easy to understand for a variety of aspects involved in the field, from using metabolic rate of organisms and many other techniques to find out not only post-mortem interval but many other key features.
