Abstract:

Hair identification is a complex and important aspect in view of forensic investigation. The use of scanning electron microscopy in wildlife forensic cases has been described for species identification in this review article. The surface cuticular pattern, cross section and medullary index provides the information regarding the domestic and wild species of the animals. Elemental analysis through EDS provides significant information of the hair sample of specific sample which can further be used as a geographical region and species identification tool. The elements present inside the hair can be tested for both intra and inter animal differences using element percentage and atomic percentage analysis like Sulfur (S), Iron (Fe), Potassium (K) and Calcium (Ca).
