When animals are abused, often determining the cause of death or injury requires specific forensic analysis, which in turn becomes evidence that can be used in court. The University of Florida plays a key role in providing veterinarians with knowledge about forensic investigations and evidence collection, and also provides information to other groups and individuals through various educational programs, including online learning as well as on-campus courses. Dr. Jason Byrd, associate director William R. Maples Center for Forensic Medicine, and colleagues will discuss how this program works and some of the interesting ways it collaborates with other groups in field investigations and disaster response.
