    • A study case of two myxomycete surveys in a fir forest of central Mexico 

      Salazar Hernández, Berlia Beneric; Valverde González, Randall; Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso (2021-07-13)
      Field collections and laboratory isolation in moist chamber cultures are two complementary techniques widely used to record sporocarps of myxomycetes. The species recorded using either method tend to be different due to ...
    • Additions to the myxobiota of Central America 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Calvo, Erick (2014)
      Given the fact that until recently the myxomycetes were an understudied group in Central America, it is not surprising that the number of new records for most countries is currently increasing at a steady pace. This is ...
    • Assemblages of myxomycetes associated with three different substrates affected by forest wildfires 

      Stephenson, Steven L.; Payal, Nazrana; Kaur, Gurpreet; Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso (2021-03-23)
      Background and aims – In late November and early December of 2016, forest wildfires occurred over portions of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (USA) and more than 4 000 ha were affected. Previous studies have shown ...
    • Can the location of the isolation laboratory affect the generation of myxomycete data using moist chambers? An experiment in the Neotropics 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Rollins, Adam W.; Matarrita Gutiérrez, Kenneth; Rojas Camacho, Pedro (2021-03-11)
      The moist chamber technique, as it is used in myxomycete research, is an extremely useful method to optimize project resources. However, as it occurs with any laboratory-based protocol, the usefulness of this technique ...
    • Comparative analysis on datasets of myxomycetes associated with boreal, temperate and tropical regions of North America 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Stephenson, Steven L. (2020-10)
      Datasets from boreal (Denali National Park, United States), temperate (Great Smoky Mountains National Park, United States) and tropical (La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica) regions of North America were subjected ...
    • First records of myxomycetes from El Salvador 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Morales, Ricardo; Calderón, Irene; Clerc, Philippe (2013-11-02)
      Myxomycetes have been studied formally in most of Central America except for El Salvador. Even though this country is the last in the region to begin an official inventory for this group of organisms, the 37 new records ...
    • Myxomycetes within ecotones in temperate and tropical forests 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Valverde González, Randall; Somerville, Stephanie; Rollins, Adam W.; Stephenson, Steven L. (2021)
      Ecotones are interesting portions of forests where microorganisms can be studied for monitoring and diversity purposes. Given the faster life cycle of these organisms, their study in such a context is important to develop ...
    • New records of myxomycetes for the state of Veracruz from Cofre de Perote National Park 

      Salazar Hernández, Berlia Beneric; Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Andrade Torres, Antonio; Medel Ortiz, Rosario (2021-09-20)
      Most of the species of myxomycetes from Mexico are well documented, but their patchy geographical and temporal distribution responds to the individual efforts carried out in different areas of the territory over time. As ...
    • What can myxomycetes tell us about floricolous microbial systems? 

      Rojas Alvarado, Carlos Alonso; Valverde González, Randall; Rollins, Adam W.; Murillo Roos, Mariana (2017-02)
      The study described herein was conducted in Costa Rica in an effort to generate baseline data on the association between tropical inflorescences and a group of microorganisms known as myxomycetes. The assemblage structure ...
