Abstract:Estimating of time of death is the first problem to be solved in forensic entomology. The development and faunal succession of insects on cadavers has certain rules, which can be used to estimate the time of death. This paper reviews the collection and identification of insects commonly used to estimate the time of death, progress in research on insect development and succession, factors affecting the estimation of time of death and challenges in forensic entomology. In addition, future prospects for progressing the application of forensic entomology in China are presented.
