About this book

Bringing together the most recent literature, this book provides an in-depth look at the field of wildlife forensic examination. Offering practical guidance, it helps investigators and lab technicians decide on best methods, including a determination of when basic microscopy is sufficient, when DNA testing should occur, and what tests or combination of tests should be executed in a particular circumstance. The text illustrates how to identify the species and geographic region of origin of an unknown sample. International contributors separate truth from myth in providing information and insight regarding the wide scope of endangered animal trafficking for meats, arts, curios, aphrodisiacs, and traditional medicines.

Contents

CITES & Legal Aspects. Role of Forensic Science. Species Identification by Microscopy. Species Identification by DNA. Linkage of Samples by DNA. Standard Analytical Chemistry Techniques. Geographical Determination by ICPMS. Combination of Analytical Testing Methods.
