  1. Results of t-tests used to compare doubly labeled water measurements for little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus) either experimentally infected with Pseudogymnoascus destructans (I) or non-infected controls (C). Total body water is represented as percentage of body mass (TBW % BM). Significant differences between treatment groups (*) were determined by p-values < Holm-Bonferroni p-values corrected by the index of comparison (k).
