Abstract

Forensic entomology has a rich history in Australia and New Zealand, and was first used in the region at least 90 years ago. Since then, there has been ongoing research and casework in both countries by at least 11 practitioners. Workers have been employed by universities, agricultural institutions, and forensic science providers. The forces driving the implementation of standards in the region are personal experience, regional dialogue, general forensic science standards, institutional standards, and court room conflict. The influence of these on current practice is discussed with particular reference to south-eastern Australia.
