Thefield of forensic entomology reached its peak on incidences that are rather presentlyunconventional through which insect presence wasexploited on an entirely different use on criminal investigations. On theaccount of Mcknight 2011, a genocide event in a group of people belonging to anagricultural community in 13th century China was once recorded to be solved by the examination of a fly’sattraction for the murder weapon: a sickle which assisted the local security toidentify the perpetrator.Inthe same way, Greenberg 2009 stated that succession is fairly normal for allorganisms that thrive on a living host oron a decaying matter.
But for insects, they demonstrate a remarkable successionpattern, particularly on animalcarcasses. Additionally, on the works of Catts & Goff, 2002; Carvalho etal., 2000; Wolff et al., 2001, they emphasize that the stages of decompositionlargely correlates with such occurrence of insect succession.On the initial resultsof Hall 2010, he observes that insects serve to be the primary inhabitant that willarrive on an animal carrion as the cadaver decomposition progresses. Otherassemblies of organisms will follow soonly as succession proceeds naturally asreported by Schoenly & Reed, 2009. Hence,post-mortem evaluations are made based onthis foreseeable behavior of carrion-dwelling insects. However,proper species recording of a carrion insect’s adolescent (eggs, larval and pupal stages) and succession patterns canaccurate determinations of post-mortem interval (PMI) be made.
This frameworkwill be applied to the thesis that the identification of the forensicentomofauna can provide the first ever record of forensically important insectspecies in the Philippines. Instances of insect use in legal examinations arefairly uncommon. Some purpose behind this might be a scarcity of data oncarcass deterioration, and insect succession in a particular vicinity.
Thus, this study intends to recordthe necrophagous insect fauna of therabbit carcass as a model for human corpses in the Philippines (Jala-Jala, Rizal), and furthermore, to describecarcass decomposition under shaded andunshaded locations in the definite region of the study.
