Course context for academic year 2014-15

Entomología Forense es una asignatura optativa que se imparte durante el segundo semestre del cuarto curso del Grado de Criminología.

 

La Entomología Forense constituye junto con la asignatura Policia Científica y Laboratorio Forense y la Medicina Legal y Ciencias Forenses, uno de los pilares básicos en las investigaciones forenses actuales. El objetivo fundamental de la asignatura es ofrecer al alumno una visión general de las evidencias entomológicas, con el fin de que conozca los principales grupos de artrópodos, así como las características básicas de su morfología y biología que aportan información para esclarecer casos legales. La asignatura se centrará en el estudio de los Insectos de importancia forense en el ambito urbano, industrial y criminal.
