The most striking discovery coming from the Phou Hin
NBCA is the Laotian rock rat ("Laonastes aenigmamus"), so unusual that it was first assigned to its own family and later to a family previously thought to be extinct for 11 million years. Another species discovered in the Phou Hin
NBCA, "Saxatilomys paulinae", represents a new genus of the Murinae subfamily, the Old World rats and mice.
Local Dublin also undergoes cluster simplification, so that stop consonant sounds occurring after fricatives or sonorants may be left unpronounced, resulting, for example, in "

In carrying out Eighth Army's orders to block the
road, regimental commander Colonel John H. Michaelis, a West Point graduate known as an effective commander, assigned the 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry, to make contact with the first North Korean attacks. On the morning of July 23, Lieutenant Colonel Gilbert J. Check moved the 1st Battalion northward toward
from the Hwanggan assembly area. He took up defensive positions in the evening near the village of Sangyong-ni, south of
. The battalion assumed responsibility for that sector at 17:00 after South Korean troops fell back through its position. However, the battalion was unable to ascertain from the retreating soldiers the NK 2nd Division's status or threat.
The vegetation of Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Area is shaped by its tropical savanna climate, and the rugged, cave-riddled and porous karst terrain. Over 50% of the landscape is estimated to be rocky outcroppings, and most of the rest is dry evergreen forest and scrubland. This diverse landscape is home to 113 species of mammal, 160 species of bird, 81 species of reptile, 47 species of amphibian and 145 species of fish. There are 41 known species of bats in Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Area, with a single cave, Tam Houay Si, used by 22 species.
Mammals known or suspected to live in Phou Hin
include the Indian elephant ("Elephas maximus indicus"), the Indochinese tiger ("Panthera tigris corbetti"), the critically endangered saola ("Pseudoryx nghetinhensis"), the giant muntjac ("Muntiacus vuquangensis"), the Assam macaque ("Macaca assamensis"), François' langur ("Semnopithecus francoisi laotum"), and the black giant squirrel ("Ratufa bicolor"). Birds found in Phou Hin
NBCA include the grey peacock-pheasant ("Polyplectron bicalcaratum"), the hill myna ("Gracula religiosa"), red-collared woodpecker ("Picus rabieri"), the sooty babbler ("Stachyris herberti"), and the wreathed hornbill ("Rhyticeros undulatus").
The Laotian Rock rat is found in limestone karsts of Khammouan Province and southern Bolikhamxai Province, Laos, and also in a small area of Minh Hóa District, western Quảng Bình Province, Vietnam. In Vietnam, it is found in the 5 communes ("xã") of Thượng Hoá, Hóa Sơn, Trung Hoá, Hóa Hợp, and Dân Hoá, and in , near the villages of the Vietic-speaking Ruc, Sach, and Chut ethnic groups. It is also found directly across the border in Hin Namno National Biodiversity Conservation Area, Laos. In Laos, it is most common in the Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Area. Nguyen et al. (2014) suggests that the Quảng Bình and Phou Hin
populations may be distinct and genetically isolated from each other.
As other North Korean forces were closing on Yongdong, the NK 2nd Division continued its advance down the road from Hwanggan to
, having arrived in Taejon too late for the fight there. Its orders were to pass through that town and come out on the main Seoul–Pusan highway at Hwanggan, about east of Yongdong, placing it in the rear of the 1st Cavalry Division and on its main supply road.
The province's forest areas consists of three reserve areas. These are the Nakai - Nam Theun National Biodiversity Conservation Area (NBCA), which covers an area of 352,200 ha of the Annamite mountains and the adjacent Nakai Plateau in the provinces of Khammouane and Bolikhamxay, the Hin Nam No National Biodiversity Conservation Area with an area of 86,229 ha, and the Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Area with an area of 150,000 ha. These forests have many natural caves.
The Khammouane IBA is situated within the Phou Hin
NBCA. The IBA is 79,000 ha in size and its altitude is above sea level. The topography and habitat are characterized by sparsely vegetated limestone karst, semi-evergreen forest, mixed deciduous forest, as well as non-calcareous substrate. The IBA is notable for supporting the sooty babbler ("Stachyris herberti") and a taxon of François' langur ("Trachypithecus francoisi").
The Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Area, formerly known as the Khammouane Limestone National Biodiversity Conservation Area, is one of 21 National Biodiversity Conservation Areas of the Lao People's Democratic Republic. Located in a limestone tower karst region of the Annamite Range in Khammouane Province, it is home to a number of rare or newly discovered species. National Biodiversity Conservation Areas are not protected by the government of Laos in any meaningful way; the budget for each is about $500. The human population of the NBCA is 29,603.
In the evening of July 23, 1st Battalion sent a 30-man patrol northward to locate the North Koreans. Near
, the patrol spotted a North Korean column approaching. The platoon took up superior positions and ambushed the column as it passed with all its weapons. The North Koreans halted their advance, thinking they had encountered a major position, and held back until daylight. When they turned back, the US patrol returned to the 1st Battalion lines at 04:00 on July 24. It suffered six men missing to an unknown number of North Korean casualties.
Three existing protected areas on the Nakai plateau (the Nakai-Nam Theun, the Hin Nam Nor and the Phou Hin
National Biodiversity Conservation Areas), together nine times larger (4,106 km) than the flooded area, are expected to be better managed through significant resources made available under the project - more than 60 times what the government has spent on its entire national parks system so far. The flooded areas are not considered critical natural habitat. There used to be significant illegal logging in the protected areas, which the government claims has now been largely brought under control despite growing evidence that villagers are using logging to supplement falling incomes.
By the time the Eighth Army Ranger Company completed training on 1 October, UN forces had broken out of the Pusan Perimeter following an amphibious landing at Inchon. The company was subsequently committed to the offensive from Pusan Perimeter. On 8 October it was redesignated the 8213th Army Unit signifying its activation as a unit, and on 14 October Puckett took an advance force to join the US 25th Infantry Division at Taejon, as part of the US IX Corps. The Rangers' first assignment was to probe north to
with the division's reconnaissance elements in search of pockets of guerrillas which had been isolated during the UN breakout from Pusan. The platoons moved to two villages near
and began a northward sweep with the 25th Infantry Division. The troops then rapidly moved to Kaesong where they eliminated the last North Korean resistance south of the 38th Parallel. In these missions, the Eighth Army Ranger Company saw frequent combat with small groups of North Korean troops. During this time they also scrounged supplies from local units, including commandeering a jeep, and taking rice and other rations from the countryside.
The ROK 6th Division continued its hard-fought action on the road through the mountains from Mun'gyong, but gradually it fell back from in front of the NK 1st Division. In the mountains above Hamch'ang the ROK 6th Division on July 24 destroyed seven North Korean T-34 tanks. Three days later the ROK 1st Division, now relieved northwest of Sangju by the US 24th Infantry and redeployed on the Hamch'ang front, destroyed four more tanks there with 2.36-inch bazookas and captured one tank intact. The remnants of the ROK 2nd Division, relieved by the 27th Infantry Regiment on the Hwanggan–
road, were incorporated into the ROK 1st Division. Thus, by July 24 the US 25th Division had taken over from the ROK 1st and 2nd Divisions the sector from Sangju westward to the Seoul–Taegu highway, and these ROK troops were moving into the line eastward and northward from Sangju on the Hamch'ang front.
Responding to the threat, the Eighth Army ordered the US 27th Infantry Regiment of the US 25th Infantry Division to block the advance. After arriving in Korea, the regiment went to the Uisong area, north of Taegu. On July 13, it moved from there to Andong to support South Korean troops, but before it entered action in the fight in that city, it suddenly received orders to move to Sangju to assist the 25th Infantry Division's other two regiments in that battle. En route, it received still other orders to change its destination to Hwanggan, and it closed there in an assembly area on the night of July 22–23. The 27th Infantry's mission at Hwanggan was to relieve the exhausted and decimated South Korean units retreating down the
road. In the meantime it lost large numbers of its experienced officers as they were shifted to the US 24th Infantry.
