The on the works of Catts & Goff,

 

The
field of forensic entomology reached its peak on incidences that are rather presently
unconventional through which insect presence was
exploited on an entirely different use on criminal investigations. On the
account of Mcknight 2011, a genocide event in a group of people belonging to an
agricultural community in 13th century China was once recorded to be solved by the examination of a fly’s
attraction for the murder weapon: a sickle which assisted the local security to
identify the perpetrator.

In
the same way, Greenberg 2009 stated that succession is fairly normal for all
organisms that thrive on a living host or
on a decaying matter. But for insects, they demonstrate a remarkable succession
pattern, particularly on animal
carcasses. Additionally, on the works of Catts & Goff, 2002; Carvalho et
al., 2000; Wolff et al., 2001, they emphasize that the stages of decomposition
largely correlates with such occurrence of insect succession.On the initial results
of Hall 2010, he observes that insects serve to be the primary inhabitant that will
arrive on an animal carrion as the cadaver decomposition progresses. Other
assemblies of organisms will follow soonly as succession proceeds naturally as
reported by Schoenly & Reed, 2009.

Hence,
post-mortem evaluations are made based on
this foreseeable behavior of carrion-dwelling insects.  However,
proper species recording of a carrion insect’s adolescent (eggs, larval and pupal stages) and succession patterns can
accurate determinations of post-mortem interval (PMI) be made. This framework
will be applied to the thesis that the identification of the forensic
entomofauna can provide the first ever record of forensically important insect
species in the Philippines. Instances of insect use in legal examinations are
fairly uncommon. Some purpose behind this might be a scarcity of data on
carcass deterioration, and insect succession in a particular vicinity. Thus, this study intends to record
the necrophagous insect fauna of the
rabbit carcass as a model for human corpses in the Philippines (Jala-Jala, Rizal), and furthermore, to describe
carcass decomposition under shaded and
unshaded locations in the definite region of the study.
