Forensic Investigation students studied the processes of decay and the use of insects for the determination of the post mortem interval. By using portions of an animal cadaver, the students photo-documented the course of decay. In addition, they collected the larvae (maggots) of colonizing blowflies in order to observe the progress of their life-cycles in relation to the progress of decay.
