About Forensic Biology

Forensic biology is the application of biology to law enforcement. It includes the subdisciplines of forensic anthropology, forensic botany, forensic entomology, forensic odontology and various DNA or protein based techniques. Forensic biology has been used to prove a suspect was at a crime scene, identify illegal products from endangered species, solve crimes by matching crime scene evidence to suspects, investigate airplane bird strikes, and investigate bird collisions with wind turbines.
