Forensic Botany is the application of plant based scientific knowledge to help interpret the events surrounding a crime. Evidence derived from the regrowth patterns of plant life or vegetation fragments found on the sole of a shoe can help bring criminals to justice. Forensic botany has the potential to be used in a wide range of criminal investigations such as murder, attempted murder, violent assaults, sexual violence, criminal damage and arson, burglary, terrorism, wildlife crime and veterinary work.
