[automatically translated] The use of biological indicators in the case of corpses long staying in the marine environment with development of shellfish colonies that colonize the skeletal remains can constitute a valid evaluation element of the residence time in the water, allowing a more accurate evaluation tanatocronologica compared to that inferred from the mere analysis of putrefactive degradation of the corpse conditions. In the present work, this evaluation has been formulated according to the intrinsic characteristics of accretion of colonies of mussels in Sicily.
