Forensic methods in conservation research

This ESR THEME SECTION focuses on the use of forensic methods in conservation research. There are a number of high precision methodologies that are becoming ever more useful in the study of ecology and conservation of endangered species, often allowing critical insight. These include: molecular genetic fingerprinting; stable isotope, trace element and compound analysis; and forensic pathology. Here, along with invited reviews from international experts, we have a number of original manuscripts that encompass the full spectrum of these techniques.

As for all current ESR articles, we are pleased to make the online version of this ESR THEME SECTION available with Open Access
