Argus Energy (formerly Pen Coal Corporation) has been conducting spring and fall seasonal monitoring of water chemistry and benthic macroinvertebrates since 1995 on the Trough Fork watershed to determine the long-term downstream impacts of mining operations. Conductivity, TDS, and sulfates have remained relatively low at the upstream site since 1995 with(More)
The area of skin supplied by the afferent fibers in a peripheral nerve is called the cutaneous area (CA) of that nerve. The CA responsive to movement of wool or hair in the genital regions were mapped in 17 ewes, with the identifications of the peripheral nerves and of the spinal nerves contributing to the pudendal plexus being checked at necropsy.(More)
The area of skin supplied by afferent fibers in a peripheral nerve is called the cutaneous area (CA) of that nerve. The CA of hind limb nerves that were responsive to movement of wool/hairs were mapped neurophysiologically in 25 barbiturate-anesthetized sheep. The CA of the dorsal cutaneous branches of the caudal lumbar spinal nerves and of the sacral(More)
The area of skin innervated by the afferent fibers in a peripheral nerve is called the cutaneous area (CA) of that nerve. Mapping of those areas that were responsive to movement of wool/hairs in the genital region of 18 anesthetized rams, combined with subsequent identification of spinal nerves and dissection of the pudendal nerve plexus, indicated(More)
