Effect of Trapping Method on Leukocyte Profiles of Black-Chested Spiny-Tailed Iguanas (Ctenosaura melanosterna): Implications for Zoologists in the Field

Table 1

Summary of relative leukocyte counts and heterophil-lymphocyte ratios of Black-chested Spiny-tailed Iguanas (Ctenosaura melanosterna) based on the method of capture. See text for description of capture methods. Eosinophils were not observed and azurophils were pooled with monocytes. Asterisks indicate level of significance in Student’s t-tests that compared means from both capture methods.
