  1. Statistically significant p values, in relation to the sample antiquity (and its interaction with measurement point), are indicated in italics
  2. Results from the ANOVA in which the variation in L*, a*, and b* of the dorsal fur color of Akodon budini specimens in relation to sample antiquity (and other variables presented and discussed elsewhere [29, 30]) are shown. Separate analyses were performed with L*, a*, or b* as dependent variable
