This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Human Body Decomposition compiles a chronological account of research into the estimation of the time since death in human bodies found decomposed so that researchers in the field can concentrate thoughts and build on achievements from the past. The fate of the human body after death is a subject that has fascinated enquirers, both in the scientific and legal realms, for millennia. However, objective research into the causes and nature of human decomposition has only taken place in the last two centuries, with quantitative measurement of the process as a means of estimating the time of death only recently being attempted. The substantial literature concerning this research has been published in numerous scientific journals since the beginning of the nineteenth century. This book expands on the current literature to include the evolving research on estimating time of death, also detailing the process of decomposition to include the early period after death when the body cools to ambient temperature and then begins to putrefy.
