From Forester to Forensic Scientist:  A botanist’s journey to the Dark Side

Guest Speaker: In semi-retirement since 2001, as Professor Emeritus, Dr Gerard Courtin embarked on a second career in Forensic Science using his knowledge of plants and soils,
especially in Ontario, to study trace evidence in cases of suspicious death. As a
result he is recognized as an expert witness in matters dealing with botany and
ecology by the Supreme Court of Ontario.
