Some knowledge of the relevant law is essential to forensic work involving reptiles and amphibians. The legislation that applies to such animals forms the basis of prosecutions, civil claims and other enquiries that call for herpetological forensic evidence. Other legal requirements set standards for the method and quality of the preparation and presentation of forensic evidence. The law relating to reptiles and amphibians and its impact on forensic work is discussed with reference to general principles that are common to many countries and, by way of example, to more specific information on international, European Union and British law.
