I'm not an expert in this field, but from what I know about the show, "bones" is a leading authority on Forensic anthropology. This is the application physical anthropology particularly in a legal context.

It is a field deeply rooted in biology, the medical arts, osteology, paleopathology, archaeology, and other anthropological techniques. Use these terms to help your research.

Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to a legal system. This may be in relation to a crime or a civil action. The word forensic comes from the Latin forēnsis, meaning "of or before the forum." In Roman times, a criminal charge meant presenting the case before a group of public individuals in the forum. Both the person accused of the crime and the accuser would give speeches based on their sides of the story. The individual with the best argument and delivery would determine the outcome of the case. This origin is the source of the two modern usages of the word forensic – as a form of legal evidence and as a category of public presentation.
