Los generos de levaduras aislados (Candida spp., Rhodotorula spp., Geotrichum spp., y Trichosporum spp.) han sido descritos en la literatura en asociacion con sustratos queratinicos como patogenos o como colonizadores primarios y finales [24], lo que permitiria relacionarlos con estados tempranos de descomposicion de cadaveres, en las condiciones ambientales de otono que se presentaron bajo las distintas coberturas boscosas (combinaciones de humedad y temperaturas ambientales con poca variacion maxima/minima).
