|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 (**).
