Expanded Description:

The value of the canine nose is well-documented, and working dogs are being utilized for their olfactory skills in an increasing number of fields. Not only are dogs used by police, security, and the military, but they are also now used in forensic science, in medical detection of disease, in calculating population trends of endangered species and eradicating invasive species in protected environments, and in identifying infestations and chemical contaminants.

Edited and contributed to by eminent scholars, Canine Olfaction Science and Law: Advances in Forensic Science, Medicine, Conservation, and Environmental Remediation takes a systematic scientific approach to canine olfaction. It includes work from scientists working in pure and applied disciplines, trainers and handlers who have trained and deployed detection dogs, and lawyers who have evaluated evidence produced with the aid of detection and scent identification dogs.

The book is divided into six sections covering

• The anatomy, genetics, neurology, and evolution of canine olfaction as well as diseases affecting it
• The chemistry and aerodynamics of odors
• Behavior, learning, and training
• Uses of canine olfaction in forensics and law
• Uses in conservation and remediation
• Uses in detection of diseases and medical conditions

The various contributors describe cutting edge research, some conclusions of which are the subject of vigorous debates between various laboratories and researchers. The editors have added cross-references so that readers can consider the different perspectives that are currently being advanced and understand where consensus is being built and where more research needs to be done.

A useful practical reference, Canine Olfaction Science and Law provides a wealth of information beneficial to a wide range of disciplines. It aids trainers and handlers of detection dogs as well as various professionals in healthcare, law enforcement, forensic science, and environmental conservation to gain a better understanding of the remarkable power of the canine nose while encouraging further advances in applications.

Tadeusz Jezierski is professor of agricultural science at the Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences. He has been a full professor at the institute since 1999 and is the head of the institute’s Department of Animal Behavior. He is an internationally known author on a wide range of topics and has written papers on animal behavior, genetics, and animal welfare. His recent research interests include operant conditioning of sniffer dogs, behavioral genetics, human–animal interactions and the human–animal bond, genetic and environmental factors influencing social and sexual behavior of farm animals, feeding behavior, and emotional behavior and physiological reactions in farm animals. He has written 73 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals, four monographs, four handbooks, 11 book chapters, and 111 conference reports.

John Ensminger is an attorney who has practiced in the areas of constitutional law, mental patient civil rights, taxation of financial instruments, anti-money laundering and counterfinancing of terrorism, and most recently the law as it applies to skilled dogs. He has written over 30 papers on these topics, with articles on service and police dogs appearing in numerous journals. He is also a contributing editor for the website of the Animal Legal and Historical Center of the Michigan State University College of Law.

He has trained hundreds of local, state, and federal officials, has written over 170 protocols for the training, testing, safety, deployment, and implementation of detection canines, and has received commendations for his work.

Science of Nosework, November 10, 2016
Reviewer: Jennifer Luft
COSL is an academic textbook about medical, scientific, forensic/legal updates and advances in canid olfaction, mainly focused on dogs. I read lots about nosework and dogs--articles, books, websites, vet. texts, blogs--and there's never enough detail for me, so this is my go-to book. It is not written for a lay audience but it is accessible to those with interest and patience with scientific/unfamiliar terms (defined), etc. There are sections on dog nose anatomy and neuroscience, aerodynamics of odor/different environments, behavior/training of dogs in various disciplines in scentwork (cadaver, search, drugs, explosives, etc), statistics/reliability of dogs' nose-abilities, uses in courts of law, case law, newer uses (for people) of the dog's nose in medicine, pest management/conservation. There are blk/wht photos & diagrams, but no colorplates, which would be great for the xray/fMRI images and tables, but lots of references if desired. It's good science writing but very dense. As a physician, past biochemist, and nosework enthusiast, I love this book and highly recommend it for those who are curious and love learning.
