Review:

“The clarity and accessibility of the text is more thanadequately geared for undergraduate students, who will appreciatethe practical tasks and perhaps even the suggested reading. . . Theillustrations will fill in gaps for readers who are more interestedin other branches of forensic science than in entomology, makingthis book a good fit for general forensic sciencedegrees.”  (African Entomology, 1 October 2013)
