Figure 1

Blood chemistry parameters. Box-and-whisker plots of blood chemistry values for hibernating little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus) experimentally infected with Pseudogymnoascus destructans and negative (non-infected) controls. Parameters for acid-base balance (a), electrolytes (b) and hydration status (c) are shown. The median (bold line), upper and lower quartiles (box), and maximum and minimum values (whiskers) are shown. Potential outliers (points) shown were not confirmed by Bonferonni outlier tests. Significant differences (*) were determined at α = 0.05 corrected for multiple comparisons by the Holm-Bonferonni method.
