The results contest the view that flesh flies colonise carcasses later than blowflies, and Sarcophaga caerulescens is designated as a good candidate for a broad forensic use in Central European cases.

Tests the possibilities of a PAI estimation from temperature in case of late‐arriving, predatory carrion beetle Creophilus maxillosus and the greatest accuracy of PAI estimates was achieved using an exponential “PAI*T” function.
Effect of body mass and clothing on decomposition of pig carcasses

Carcass mass and carcass clothing are factors of potential high forensic importance. In casework, corpses differ in mass and kind or extent of clothing; hence, a question arises whether methods for…

It is concluded that experiments using human cadaver analogues (i.e. pig carcasses) are easier to replicate and more practical for controlling confounding factors than studies based solely on humans and, therefore, are likely to remain the authors' primary epistemic source of forensic knowledge for the immediate future.

Insect succession on carrion : seasonality, habitat preference and residency of histerid beetles (Coleoptera: Histeridae) visiting pig carrion exposed in various forests (western Poland)
Differences in forest type preferences may result from differences in soil humidity and temperature near the forest floor, whereas differences in residency period on carrion between Margarinotus and Saprinus may be explained by differences in release patterns of volatile organic compounds attracting these genera.
