Abstract This review covers relevant literature for the study of forensic entomology in Alaska, United States. It highlights work completed in the region and calls attention to areas that warrant additional study. Research covered includes, but is not limited to, surveys of blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae), mammalian decomposition projects, carrion associated arthropod communities, and necrophage microbial communities associated with Alaskan salmon spawning. The unique climate, location, and terrain of Alaska compared to other regions within the United States warrants additional studies in this region to establish baseline data on the biodiversity, development, and succession of forensically important insects in the area.
