Forensic Analysis

Scientific and Medical Techniques and Evidence under the Microscope

Edited by Ian Freckelton

University of Melbourne

Forensic Analysis - Scientific and Medical Techniques and Evidence under the Microscope is an edited collection with contributions from scholars in ten countries, containing cutting-edge analyses of diverse aspects of contemporary forensic science and forensic medicine. It spans forensic gait analysis evidence, forensic analysis in wildlife investigations, mitochondrial blood-typing, DNA profiling, probabilistic genotyping, toolmark analysis, forensic osteology, obstetric markers as a diagnostic tool, salivary analysis, pharmacogenetics, and forensic analysis of herbal drugs. This book provides information about the parameters of expertise in relation to a number of areas that are being utilised as a part of criminal investigations and that are coming before courts internationally or will soon do so. Thereby, it is hoped that rigor in the evaluation of such evidence will be enhanced, a fillip for developing standards will be provided, and the incidence of miscarriages of criminal justice will be minimised.
