FORS 6642 - Wildlife Forensics


Wildlife forensic science is a relatively new and diverse discipline in the forensic sciences.  Practitioners of wildlife forensics include experts in biology to pathology to digital evidence.  The range of subjects that a wildlife forensic investigator may encounter makes this an interesting, if not challenging, job prospect.  The crimes that could be investigated include poaching, smuggling, and illegal pet trade, to name just a few.  This course will examine the different specialties that  might be required in a wildlife forensic case and how the case will be approached.  Laboratory fee;
3 credit hours.
