Movement Of The Body Following Death

Although insects and other arthropods are among the most widely distributed organisms on earth, they are often quite specific in their distributions. As noted earlier, the fauna of the decomposing corpse is composed of species having a wide distribution and species specific to the particular area in which the body is discovered. Presence of species not typically associated with the habitat in which the body is discovered is an indication that the victim died in one location and the body was exposed to insect activity for a period of time. Following this, the body was transported to another location where a second colonization by insects took place.
