Distribution comparisons of serum parameters across four groups of Asiatic black bears (Ursus thibetanus). Sample sizes for each bear group and parameter are listed in Tables 1 and 2. ALT = alanine transaminase, GGT = gamma glutamyltransferase, ALKP = alkaline phosphatase, CREA = creatinine, PCV = packed cell volume, TWBC = total white blood cell, BE = bile-extracted, FNE = farm-not-extracted, FR = free-range. Solid horizontal lines across entire plot for each analyte denote upper reference limit for Asiatic black bears [13,14,15]. Note split y-axes for ALKP and TWBC. Thick horizontal line within each box represents the median sample value, the bottom and top of each box represents the 25th and 75th quantiles (1st and 3rd quartiles), and whiskers extend to the data point within 1.5 x interquartile range of the 1st and 3rd quartiles, or by the lowest or highest data point
