Comparing intestine lengths for tadpoles with and without exposure to Bd fugus
A data frame with 27 observations on the following 4 variables.
Exposed to fungus (
Length of body (in mm)
Length of intestine (in mm)
Measure of damage to the mouth (e.g. missing teeth)
Biologists wondered whether tadpoles can adjust the relative length of their intestines if they are exposed to a fungus called Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd).
