After death, the energy in the body dissipates. The effect of water, or lack thereof, has already been addressed with adipocere formation or mummification. Water as a secondary factor (drowning victims) will be covered later. So, to simplify things, it comes down to temperature. Temperature High temperature relates to high soil temperature, high levels of soil bacteria, lots of insects, and warm water. Conversely, low temperatures result in lower soil temperature, less bacteria, less insects, and less water.

H. and S. L. Cunningham, 2011. 32 Death, Decomposition, and Detection Dogs As the body starts to fall apart (but still has bone and connective tissue), it is called partial skeletonization. Once the bones are no longer connected, and the skeleton falls apart or disarticulates and is considered to be fully skeletonized. Special States of Decomposition Different parts of a body will decompose differently, depending on the conditions to which the body is subjected. There are some “special” situations that are a result of certain situations.
