Default What are the different branches of Forensic science?

I did a search but haven't found anything good...

So far I've got:

Pathology-studying the mentality of criminals (I think?)
Ballistics-Guns/bullets analyzation
Toxicology-Poison tests on cadavers
Finger print stuff

I know there are tons of different branches, what are some others?

I went to csi.com but couldn't find what I wanted.

Specifically I want to be an on-site forensic scientist, doing something at the crime scene itself.

I thought there was just:

CSI Las Vegas

and

CSI Miami

Possibly the Crossing Jordan show, but I doubt it.

I'm not, so I enjoy them. I look for entertainment and perceived realism in shows, not actual realism, if I want that, I'll watch a documentary.
