Relationship between blood biochemical parameters and body mass | |||
Dependent variables | Independent variables | LD season | SD season |
ALP (U/L) | Body mass (g) | n=39, r=0.10 | n=37, r=0.32 * |
BUN (mg/dL) | n=39, r=0.14 | n=37, r=0.41 ** | |
GLU (mg/dL) | n=39, r=0.16 | n=37, r=0.43 ** | |
PHOSP (mg/dL) | n=39, r=0.16 | n=37, r=0.37 * |
Sample sizes for each photoperiod: long-day (LD) season and short-day (SD) season and the Pearson correlation coefficient r are given for each regression, as dependent and independent variables. Values were statistically significant if p<0.05 (*). A p<0.01 was indicated by two asterisks (**).
