- Anthropological characteristics of students of Faculty of sports and physical education
- The purpose of this study was to analyze anthropological characteristics of the third year students of Faculty of Sports and Physical Education. Based on values of measured anthropometric parameters (body height, body mass, skinfold thicknesses, body girths and diameters), nutritional status, body composition and somatotype were assessed in the group of 122 students (89 boys and 33 girls). Mean body height was 181.46±5.53 cm for boys and 166.86±5.93 cm for girls. Mean body mass index was normal. Highest number of examined students had normal weight, 6.06% of girls were underweight, while 9.09% of girls and 28.09% of boys were overweight. In 4.49% of boys overweight was caused by enlarged lean body mass. 19.10% of boys and 6.06% of girls were overweight and had higher fat mass at the same time, while four overweight boys and one girl had highly increased fat mass. Mean fat mass was 18.01±3.57% in boys and 26.68±6.03% in girls. Mean muscle mass was 42.77±7.57% in boys and 36.76±2.99% in girls. Regarding to somatotype, highest number of examined students of both genders was mesomorphic-endomorph. In comparison to the students of the same Faculty who were underwent similar anthropometric measurements ten years ago (Krsmanović B. et al., 1997), current students have higher fat mass, especially boys. Our results indicate that most students show normal anthropometric profile. Normal fat mass in overweight students corresponds with typical athletic profile. However, higher fat mass that correlated with overweight in some students gives rise to the need for additional physical activity assessment.
- Anthropological characteristics of the football players in different competition ranks
- This research was conducted on the sample of 180 football players aged 18-28 years in different competition ranks. 30 variables were applied, out of which 11 anthropometric measures, 12 motor tests, 3 for the assessment of cognitive abilities and 4 for the assessment of conative characteristics. The aim of the research is to define anthropological characteristics for each rank of competition, to define differences in some anthropological characteristics referred to the competition rank and to isolate factor which significantly discriminate football players in relation to the competition rank. Besides the basic statistics multivariate analysis of variance was calculated (to define the significance of the variability in all analyzed competition ranks). In the end discrimination analysis was applied (to define relative contribution of each variable to differing of football players in all analyzed competition ranks and in all four researched areas. .
- Anthropological differences between successful and less successful 10-12 year-old swimmers
- The aim of this paper is to determine differences in anthropometric characteristics between successful and less successful swimmers 10-12 years old. On 72 swimmers aged 10-12 years, divided into three subgroups, based on the swimming speed of 100m freestyle, testing was performed in the some anthropometric variables. Statistical analyses showed differences in the values of body height, leg length and arm span. Study results confirm the importance of anthropological characteristics of tested swimmers, and indicate that during the selection of swimmers, attention should be paid to height, leg length and arm span. These features have great influence on results of swimming for the given age.
- Anthropological investigation of skeleton remains from Bački Sokolac
- Northern Vojvodina is rich with archeological findings. In this project the data is given about antropological process of series of skeletons, alltogether 71, (part of a graveyard), which were found not very far from Bačka Topola. The findings are from the 7th - 8th century. The preservation of the skeletons is mediocre. 8 child, 33 male and 28 female skeletons were determined. The asymmetry of the left and right side of the body is explicit. Sexual dimorphism is also explicit. Antropologically and statistically were processed as well as cranially and postcranially the skeletons' remains. .
- Anthropologo-odontological and dermatoglyphic characterization of the contemporary Bulgarian population
- Palm and finger prints of 120 men and 120 women from the region of Kozlodui were studied. Two groups with total number of 240 individuals of both sexes or 480 dermatogliphycal prints were investigated, according to a complex of dermatogliphical trains. The diagnostic analysis of the dermatogliphyc data was done according to Cummins and Midlo's method. In order to be established significant or insignificant differences between the studied group, the received data were treated by the method of t - criterium according to formule of Weber (1961). It was established a bimanual asymmetry in the studied population according to some dermatogliphic traits in both sexes. It was found out a sexual dimorphism by some traits as well like III interdigital pads and AIT. On the basis of race - diagnostic analysis done a conclusion, that the explored population has European characteristic with a weak 'eastern' admixture. Odontological traits of 100 persons of both sexes of the region of Kozlodui were studied. It was established, that the investigated group, as a whole, belong to the Western odontological stem. According to some of the odontological traits, however like shovel - shaped upper medial incisors and crowding, it is observed increased frequency of the trait out of the limits of the Western odontological stem, which is an indication for a weak 'eastern' tendency. .
- Anthropology in Serbia and Montenegro
- Anthropology in Serbia and Montenegro developed under similar circumstances and underwent three larger stages. The first period, from the middle of the XIX to the beginning of the XX century, is characterized by unsystematic gathering of data by scientists working in different areas (geology, geography, archaeology, ethnology). During the second period, from the beginning of the XX century until the beginning of World War II, anthropology developed as part of the hygiene department, and it was introduced into certain institutions as the science of man. The University of Belgrade started teaching anthropology in 1906 as the general science of man with specific subjects (anthropogeography, ethnology, biology, certain medical sciences). Special attention was devoted to the exploration of human morphology, his biotipology, human races, and their varieties. The third stage includes the period after World War II. In this period, in comparison with previous stages, anthropology in Serbia and Montenegro became institutionalized, expanded its area of work, and connected with international anthropological institutions, especially after the Yugoslav Anthropological Society was founded (1959). During this period annual anthropological scientific conferences with international participation are held continually, certain university centers included anthropology in their program of studies, publishing is expanded, and all areas of anthropological research are developed, which is further discussed in the oral presentation. Fourth period in development of anthropology in Serbia and Montenegro begins with reorganizing Yugoslav anthropological Society on XXXI congress which is held in May 1992 in Kotor (Montenegro). At that time, some republics won their independence, so members left, and only Serbian and Montenegrian members stayed in this very successful scientific organization.
- Anthropometric analysis of elementary school pupils in rural areas
- Rural areas are not often wrote about, and pupils from rural areas are almost never the subject of any scientific work. The spot of our research is the elementary school 'Sveti Sava', in the village of Kakmuž beneath the mountain Ozren, in the heart of Republic of Srpska. This place was selected intentionally, for its special historic, geographic, demographic and social characteristics. The research included pupils from first to ninth grade that were born during the period 1994-2002. The sample comprizes 301 pupils, 156 boys and 145 girls. The following parameters were measured: body mass and height, chest circumference (CC), waist circumference (WC), hips circumference (HC), and from those parameters the following was calculated: body mass index (BMI), waist to stature ratio (WSR), waist to hip ratio (WHR). The data were classified in nine groups according to school grades. The aim of this research was to confirm or reject the presence of linear associated (mathematical function) with certain anthropometric parameters in relation to age and sex of pupils. The detailed statistical analysis was performed for each group, and for the total sample. All results were represented numerically and graphically. Analysis of the results according to age and sex of pupils we obtained data indicating that it is a healthy population of the rural, school children. .
- Anthropometric analysis of the nourishment of population in rural areas
- In the lower course of Vrbas river there is fluvisol-eugley soil type (black soil) on the left side and its very fertile. On the right side there is pseudogley soil type (sandy soil) and its lower quality. The study is experimental and includes field work. The specimen consists of 68 examinees from Kladari village and 63 examinees from Povelic village. Personal and family history were taken and following clinical examinations and anthropometric measurements were done on all examinees: blood pressure, blood sugar, lipid profile (TC, LDL, VLDL, HDL, TCG), weight, height, waist circumference and hip circumference and calculated WHR and WSR parameters. Obesity and preobesity are found in population of Kladari village. High WHR and WHS are also noticed, which shows higher risk of metabolic complications. Undernourishment and normal nourishment is appeared in most of our examinees from Povelic village.
- Anthropometric and sociodemographic characteristics of treated alcoholics
- Alcoholism was a chronic, progressive disease with a recidivistic progression which is characterized by the need to drink alcoholic drinks to achieve pleasure. In later phases of the disease, physical and mental damage occurs as a consequence of long-term overuse of alcohol. The aim of this paper is to determine the morphological characteristics, state of nourishment, sociodemographic structure of alcoholics and the relations between these characteristics. Sixty male subjects in treatment for alcohol addiction in the department for alcoholism, drug abuse and borderline conditions at the HC 'Dr R. Simonović' in Sombor were surveyed. The survey was carried out in accordance with the directive and methods from the International Biological Program: body height, leg length, body mass, shoulder width, pelvis width, chest width, chest depth and chest diameter. Body Mass Index (BMI) was used to determine the state of nourishment. Average age of the test subject is 49,1 year, single tall, averagely nourished (BMI = 24,57 kg/m), finished high school (80%) and unemployed (80%), unmarried or divorced (43,3%), live in the country more often (63,3%), already treated for alcoholism (86,7%), and alcoholism present in the family (96,7%), and is most commonly related to personality disorders (56,7%).
- Anthropometric characteristics and motor abilities of 17-year-old students of different sports orientation
- The sample of 60 male 17-year-old students (+/- 6 months) of different sports orientation (volleyball, basketball, and football) was tested in 11 anthropometric parameters. Variable sample included: body height, body mass, average chest circumference, upper arm circumference, lower arm circumference, upper leg circumference, lower leg circumference, skin fold of upper arm, skin fold of the back, skin fold of the stomach, and fat content %. In addition, the subjects were also tested for motor abilities, especially power factors (explosive, repetitive, and static). Anthropometric measurements were performed according to the method of International Biological Program, whereas the motor tests were in accordance with the instructions of Kurelić et al. and Metikoš et al. Results were statistically processed and presented in a table to be discussed subsequently in the text. Central and depression parameter variables were analyzed first to be followed by multivariant analysis of variance and profile analysis of differences between groups. .
- Anthropometric characteristics of children of younger school age in relation to attitudes and engagement of their parents in physical activities
- This Paper deals with analysis of relations between attitudes of parents towards physical activities of their children, as well as with their own engagement in them, with anthropometrical characteristics of children. Sample of examinees included 680 boys and girls from primary school in territory of Vojvodina. Data about physical activity were collected on the basis of questionnaire, anthropometrics measurement included three measures for evaluation subcutaneous fat tissue (abdominal fold, subscapular fold and upper-arm fold). It was affirmed that lower or negative parents attitude regarding physical activity, or no engagement of parents in physical activities of their children, have impact that children are not active in participation in sports organization, what particularly contributes increasing of subcutaneous fat tissue at girl.
- Anthropometric characteristics of girls included in program of development gymnastics
- The sample of 286 girls included in program of development gymnastic and 581 girls which are not included in any sport aged 7-11, from a territory of largest cities of Vojvodina, were tested by 8 anthropometric measures. The aim of research was to compare anthropometric characteristics of girls included in program of development gymnastic to those who are not included in any sport, and to analyze how much gymnastic activities, known as basic sport activities, are efficient in transformation of treated characteristics in female population during a highly sensitive stage of biological development. Based on multivariant analysis of variance (MANOVA), statistically significant differences were determined in system of anthropometric measures. Following the application of univariant analysis of variance (ANOVA), statistically significant differences were determined in almost all anthropometric measures (except body height) in terms of better results at girls included in program of development gymnastic. This is especially true of measures for evaluation of subcutaneous tissue in girls included in program of development gymnastic, whose results are drastically lower then results of girls which are not included in any sport. Generally, it can be said that gymnastic contents are efficient instrument of positive influence on anthropometric characteristics of girls aged 7-11, and that they are recommended for implementation in physical education, in schools and elsewhere. This is especially important in view of great sensibility of biological development in referred age.
