Wellington Emanuel dos Santos

Resumo


Esse trabalho apresenta uma breve revisão do papel que as moscas (Insecta, Diptera) desempenham na Entomologia Forense. São apresentadas discussões sobre ocorrência em cadáveres humanos e carcaças de vertebrados, estimativas de Intervalo Pós-Morte (IPM), estudos realizados no Brasil e em outros países, principais famílias de importância forense e aspectos biológicos, ecológicos e de distribuição das principais espécies.

Palavras chave: Calliphoridae, Diptera, Intervalo Pós-Morte, Muscidae, Sarcophagidae.

Abstract: This paper presents a brief review of the role of flies (Insecta, Diptera) in Forensic Entomology.
