About this book

This book introduces the forensic scientist to the practice of forensic botany by providing technique instructions, reference photos and analysis of digested plant materials. Because humans cannot digest cellulose, plant foods can be traced and identified at various stages of digestion. Using the techniques described in this book, the forensic pathologist will be able to identify the type of plant consumed as well as whether it was consumed during the victim's last meal. You will also learn to identify toxic and poisonous plants/herbal products and crime scene plant identification. the final section of the book explains how to utilize the botany expertise at colleges, museums, gardens and botany organizations throughout the world.
