Review of: Hair ID: An Interactive Tool for Identifying Australian Mammalian Hair
Anyone who's studied animal hairs microscopically generally refers to Brunner and Coman's book (1), The Identification of Mammalian Hair, as "The Book." Very few comprehensive references are available for animal hairs and the interested microscopist must search and hunt for old and mostly out-of-print references (2). Hair ID is a modern and excellent addition to the animal hair literature. It is simple, fast, and flexible. An excellent training aid and reference, every forensic science laboratory and forensic educational program should own a copy of Hair ID.
