Of course, the popularity of forensic science is warranted, seeing how forensics uses the latest in technology and biology to bring criminals to justice and solve crimes.

Currently, they are the biggest feline on the planet. But if things continue the way they are, they may not be for long. In the article "Siberian Tigers Fade Away,"
by the Wildlife Conservation Society, they state that in 2005 it was estimated that there were only about 500 Siberian tigers living in their habitat of eastern Russia.
