Product Description:
The taphonomic approach within paleontology, archaeology, and paleoanthropology continues to produce advances in understanding postmortem biochemical and morphological transformations. Conversely, advances in understanding the early and intermediate postmortem period generated in the forensic realm can and should be brought to the attention of scientists who study the historic and prehistoric past.

Building on the success of Forensic Taphonomy: The Postmortem Fate of Human Remains, Advances in Forensic Taphonomy: Method, Theory, and Archaeological Perspectives presents new and updated techniques. It expands the taphonomic focus on biogeographic context and microenvironments and integrates further the theoretical and methodological links with archaeology and paleontology.

Topics covered include:
  • Microenvironmental variation and decomposition in different environments
  • Taphonomic interpretation of water deaths
  • Mass graves, mass fatalities and war crimes, archaeological and forensic approaches
  • Updates in geochemical and entomological analysis
  • Interpretation of burned human remains
  • Discrimination of trauma from postmortem change
  • Taphonomic applications at the scene and in the lab

    This comprehensive text takes an interdisciplinary and international approach to understanding taphonomic modifications. Liberally illustrated with photographs, maps, and other images, Advances in Forensic Taphonomy: Method, Theory, and Archaeological Perspectives is a valuable source of information for postmortem death investigation.

    5.0 out of 5 stars.  Some scuffing on corner, shipped immediately, April 08, 2009
    By K. Lynn
    Although this book had some scuffing on the corner, it was exactly as described by the seller so that wasn't unexpected. The seller also shipped the book immediately which is a huge plus for me since I often need books ASAP for classes. Thanks!!

    4.0 out of 5 stars.  A decent overview, December 22, 2008
    By Philip A. Polstra
    This is a pretty good overview of the subject. It is a required text for a graduate class on forensic sciences.
