Course Description

This course will be delivered by Dr Mark A. Spencer, an experienced Forensic Botanist who frequently provides expertise to both UK and international police and law enforcement clients. Dr Spencer has aided serious crime investigations across the UK, utilising his expertise in botany and landscape history to assess how long human remains have been in-situ, to link a suspect to a crime scene or victim, and locate missing people. His expertise has been utilised in missing person searches (especially cold cases), as well as investigations of violent and sexual assaults, burglary, arson, and domestic terrorism.

This one-day interactive course will showcase the fascinating world of forensic botany and ecology, and illustrate how botanical evidence, including pollen and plant matter, can be used to help solve crimes. It will give delegates an insight into how such evidence can help investigators estimate how long human remains have been in position, understand the circumstances surrounding deposition and provide trace evidence linking suspects to victims or locations of interest.

This course is running on 22nd March 2023.
