But nature can also provide clues, if you know how to read them. Bugs, Bones & Botany: The Science of Crime, airing at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT), on THE NATURE OF THINGS with David Suzuki, introduces viewers to some unexpected heroes of the forensic world. Microbiologist Dr. Jennifer Gardy shows us how bugs, plants, bones, even dust, can also be formidable enemies of crime.
