The skills involved in nonhuman bone identification may take non-experts years to learn, and some identifications require direct sample comparisons. Therefore, a photo-driven field guide is in great demand. This book provides scale photos of nonhuman bones that are typically found in forensic contexts which are often mistaken for human skeletal material, as well as photos of taphonomic occurrences that typify postmortem change in nonhuman material. The book shows how to prepare specimens for skeletal analysis and photograph them properly, and includes case studies and exclusion matrices, It also includes geographic distribution information on forensically significant animals, reptiles, and fish.
