The pigment can be studied on the basis of the pigment distribution, pigment color, and pigment type. 1 Pigment Distribution The pigment may be present in the cortex or medulla or in both, but rarely in the cuticle (Benedict, 1957). The arrangement of the pigment granules, which may be peripheral or central, is used in species identification and can be best seen in a cross-section of the hair. In certain species the pigment distribution along the length of hair is very informative. 48). These banding aspects have been used in species identification keys (Stains, 1958; Mayer, 1952).

Latent fingerprint impressions—Can be useful for obvious instances, such as who handled a weapon, but also of great potential in identifying who handled the packaging used for wildlife smuggling or who handled a fake CITES document. • Morphology—Given access to appropriate reference collections, this is often the first step in determining what species one is dealing with. This can involve whole specimens, right down to fur and feathers. • Pathology—A wildlife law enforcement officer investigating the suspected “murder” of an animal needs to know how it died, just as much as his counterpart in human homicides.

Brunner and Coman, 1974). 48. As the pigment distribution and color vary considerably along the length of the hair shaft, along body parts of the same individual, and across individuals of the same species, and as the pigment is subject to color mutations and fading, it is not a very reliable tool for species characterization and is of limited use. 1 Cleaning of Hair Samples For the study of hair structures to characterize or identify species, it is necessary that the hair samples are clean and dirt-free.
