About This Project

We study how communities of insects and bacteria inhabiting human cadavers change through time. This pattern of change, or succession, is orderly and predictable and can be used to estimate the time since death (TSD) at a crime scene. We predict that local aspects of the environment, such as rainfall or enclosure, can influence interactions between insects and bacteria. By understanding these aspects, we can better predict how insects and bacteria will be affected and better estimate the TSD.
