As with Veterinary Assessment and Forensic Examinations, site evaluations may or may not involve an animal, or their remains.
Experts are available to attend a range of sites, or crime scenes, to examine animals and their surroundings. This may include:
- Triage, animal assessment, recovery and treatment.
- Collection of samples and evidential material from animals on-site.
- Evaluation of the site for animal needs and suitability for species (domestic, farmyard or agricultural).
- Full documentation, including photography and videography.
- Appropriate recovery, handling and packaging of evidential material.
In addition, a range of ecological (forensic) services is available, including:
- (Forensic) entomology: Collection and assessment of insect material from carcasses and remains.
- (Forensic) palynology: Collection and comparison of pollen and spores from soil, digging implements or vehicles, to identify or include/exclude a particular location.
- Forensic botany: Assessment and collection of plant material, or site surveys, to identify or include/exclude a particular location.
- (Forensic) sedimentology: Collection and comparison of soils and other geological materials, from sites, items or vehicles, to identify or include/exclude a particular location.
- Forensic archaeology: Search and location of burial sites (animals and clandestine material), excavation and recovery of carcasses and remains.
