Abstract

Taphonomy refers to the study of conditions and processes by which cadavers become fossilized. The degradative role of certain arthropods and other zoo saprophytes on human cadavers is now applied in estimating Post Mortem Interval (PMI) but pose its own limitations when cadaver remains have been recovered from bottom of the deep well or burials. To identifiy edaphic and airborne fungi and estimate their cadaver decomposing potency as indicator for Post Mortem Interval (PMI).
