  2. Results of t-tests used to compare mean blood chemistry parameters for little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus) either experimentally infected with Pseudogymnoascus destructans or negative (non-infected) controls. Significant differences between treatment groups (*) were determined by p-values < Holm-Bonferroni p-values corrected by the index of comparison (k).
