Revision and denomination of Balkan beech plant communities in Serbia
Glasnik ?umarskog Fakulteta , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/gsf0694029t
Abstract: The syntaxonomic differentiation and nomenclature of beech forests in Serbia is analyzed. Based on 75 phytocoenological tables of numerous authors and this author’s, from different parts of Serbia, 7 synthetic tables were constructed, one for each of the suballiances in the alliance Fagion moesiacae Ble i et Laku i 1970. By the introduction of the unique criteria of International Phytosociological Nomenclature only 20 basic syntaxonomic categories (associations) were formed and denominated, distributed into 7 suballiances. In this way, the nomenclature and classification of beech forests in Serbia has been harmonized with the international standards.
A contribution to the study of the association quercetum montanum er. et Jov. 1953. in north-east Serbia
Glasnik ?umarskog Fakulteta , 2003, DOI: 10.2298/gsf0387197t
Abstract: The association Quercetum montanum er. et Jov. 1953 in north-east Serbia is researched. Its site conditions, structure and floristic composition are defined and four sub associations are designated based on the differences in soils and differential species: ornetosum, pauperum, typicum and tilietosum.

Glasnik ?umarskog Fakulteta , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/gsf0285101t
Abstract: In the unflooded part of the river Sava, Bosut and Studva bottom lands in Gornji Srem (forest sections Morovi and Vi nji evo), the following succession series are clearly differentiated on large areas: forests of narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinetum angustifoliae Jov. et Tom.1979. s.l) on ((/(-(/(-gley ( forests of pedunculate oak and narrow-leaved ash (Fraxino-Quercetum roboris Jov. et Tom.1979. s.l) on humogley, humosemigley and semigley ( forests of pedunculate oak, hornbeam and ash (Carpino-Fraxino-Quercetum roboris Jov. et Tom. 1979, s.l) on semigley, brown forest soil and soil lessive Forest of pedunculate oak and narrow-leaved ash, which is an intermediary stage of the ecological succession series, is also differentiated into three ecological units (subassociations), which are the developmental phases of the association - primary, optimal and terminal – Forest of pedunculate oak and ash with hygrophilic accessories (Fraxino-Quercetum roboris hygrophyllum) on moderately moist hydromorphic black soils (humogley, ecological (-gley) is the primary phase, ecologically and syn-dynamically related to the terminal phase of the previous stage – forest of narrow-leaved ash with sedge (Fraxinetum angustifoliae caricetosum remotae) on (/(-gley. The dominant edificator is narrow-leaved ash, while pedunculate oak is in the subdominant position Moister meadow black soils are characterised by intensive moisture, because already at the depth of 20/30-50 cm, the process of gleying occurs. Underground water stagnates at the depth of 80-120 cm – Typical forest of pedunculate oak and ash (Fraxino-Quercetum roboris typicum) on the drier varieties of humosemigley is the optimal phase in the development of the association, with a slowed down dynamism. Both edificators are in their ecological and coenological optima, i.e. the conditions of their development are excellent In the drier hygromorphic black soils the level of underground water is about 40 cm lower than the moister variety, so that the stagnating underground water occurs at the depth of 120-160 cm. However, thanks to capillary rise, the tree root system has abundant moisture. Simultaneously, the physical properties of the soil are more favourable, so the ecological productivity potential is very high – Forest of pedunculate oak and ash with field maple and Tartar maple (Fraxino-Quercetum roboris aceretosom) on semigleys is the terminal phase, syn-dynamically and spatially related to the following phase – forest of pedunculate oak, hornbeam and ash with sedge (Carpino-Fraxino-Quercetum roboris caricetosum remotae) on
Results of democratic transition through the eyes of citizens of Serbia in 2005

Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/fid0527013g
Abstract: In 2005 The Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory has undertaken a reputed interview (after the one done in 2001/2002, whose results have been published in Politika i svakodnevni ivot, 2003), based on identical methodology (in-depth interview and qualitative analysis) but on a reduced sample (30 interviewees) in six towns in Serbia. The objective was to examine how citizens see the circumstances in society today, five years after the October turn, and what conditions their attitudes towards: the policy of new democratic powers, of democratic parties and those of the ex-regime, as well as towards the problems they are confronted with, and whether the initial optimism has gone and why. The results obtained by this interview show that after five years of experience with democratic transition the interviewees are more critical regarding the actual democratic policy (especially of the second democratic Government), and more likely to forget the reasons created by the former regime as obstacles to a successful democratic transition. For this reason, disappointment has grown, and an initial optimism gives its place to pessimism, with vanishing of the hope in the possibility of radical democratic change. This makes it possible to give a chance to the Radical Party in a future election. But, in spite of current confusion among citizens produced by the examined state of affairs, as well as the ambiguities in certain attitudes, this inquiry suggests that the interviewees have provided a quite realistic evaluation of the actual conditions in Serbian society today, and that their criticism, which arises from disappointment, does not completely cancel a positive attitude towards democratic transition, since their criticism results from dissatisfaction with the unrealized democratic principles and values after October 5th.
A socio-anthropological analysis of deficits of transition process in Serbia 2005-2006 and possibilities for elaborating alternative projects
Golubovi? Zagorka
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/fid0630091g
Abstract: The paper is an outline of the author’s research project to be undertaken in 2006. It is focused on the process of transition from authoritarian to democratic order in Serbia after 2000. Starting from the findings of previous studies of transition, in Serbia and in other post socialist countries, the research will adopt a socio-anthropological approach and deal with the following topics: the model of transition being applied in Serbia preconditions for democratic transformation; a balance sheet of positive achievements accomplished and, on the other hand, "lost chances"; socio economic, political and cultural obstacles to articulating a coherent strategy of democratic development; psychological and anthropological aspects of current processes; alternative paths of democratic development feasible within given conditions. A central question the research will aim at resolving is why the current situation in Serbia is often described as suffering from a "democratic deficit".
Myomectomy by vaginal route

Srpski Arhiv za Celokupno Lekarstvo , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/sarh0402018m
Abstract: In recent years, the development of new surgical techniques in uterus myoma treatment have reduced operative trauma significantly. Our objective was to present operative technique-vaginal myomectomy, making a prospective clinical study where we have evaluated the operative and postoperative period after intentive diagnosis. The result of our study shows the feasibility of myomectomy by entering the peritoneum through the posterior vaginal fornix, using traditional and cheap surgical instruments and thus avoiding the trauma of laparatomy, minimal operative blood loss, reduced operating time and postoperative recovery. In our opinion, vaginal myomectomy could be useful for the treatment of selected cases with fundal or posterior wall uterine myomas.
Freedom and the principles of morality
Golubovi? Zagorka T.
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2003, DOI: 10.2298/fid0321097g
Abstract: Freedom as an authentic and willed process, characteristic of man as a human rational being, enables the individual to act in accordance with the principles of morality, since the individual can choose between good and evil (between two possibilities), and in this way to get out of the sphere of the given to which the rest of the living world is limited. We should recall the forgotten Marx and his famous text on the essential difference between the animal world and humanity as a genus: "The animal is immediately united with its vital activity. It does not differ from it. It is vital activity. Man makes his own vital activity the subject of his will and consciousness. He has conscious vital activity. This is not a determination with which he merges immediately. Conscious vital activity distinguishes man directly from animal vital activity. It is exactly in this way alone that he is a generic being. Or a conscious being, i.e. his own life is a subject for him precisely because he is a generic being. It is only for this reason that his activity is free activity..." (K. Marx, "Alienation", Early Works). In other words, while animals live just the life of their species and cannot choose anything else, since the choice has been made by the fact of their belonging to a species, man can choose the world in which to live, overcoming in this way the natural givens. Here lies the core of the anthropological explanation of the principle of morality, inconceivable without man's ability to be an authentic free being.
Politics and everyday life: Serbia 1999-2002
Golubovi? Zagorka T.
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/fid0209307g
Abstract: A field study is accomplished in 20 towns in Serbia by the method of deep interview. The objective of the investigation: to find out how the citizens themselves have experienced the last years of the former regime as well as the change after the 5th of October, 2000. The study is focused on the attitudes of the informants regarding the reasons of the fall of the former regime and the motives which have (or have not) moved them to involve in the struggle for social change; of the experience of the very date of the turnover: of the changes after that period, as well as of the attitudes toward the International community and their opinions about war-crimes, with a particular emphasis on attitudes concerning the Hague Tribunal. The accumulated data will be elaborated by the qualitative method which makes it possible to consider the responses in the context of everyday life situation and preserve their original expressions, different from the schemes from the media and official reports.
Misperceptions of peer gambling norms among adolescents: Analysis of a national sample in Finland  [PDF]
Susanna Raisamo, Tomi Lintonen
Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2012.22019
Abstract: Introduction: Misperceptions of peer drinking norms are widely documented in the US student populations and are associated with increased personal consumption. Few studies have examined misperceptions of peer gambling, and none of these have been conducted among adolescents in the European context. In a national sample, we examined misperceptions of peer gambling in Finland. Tenets of the social norms approach form a framework for discussion of the findings. Methods: Participants were 4526 adolescents aged 12 to 18 years who completed the nationwide Adolescent Health and Lifestyle Survey in 2011. Main measures were gambling behavior and the perception of same age-sex peers’ gambling. Misperception was an overestimation of the frequency of gambling by others compared to the actual frequency of gambling. Results: Adolescents held substantial misperceptions of peer gambling, imagining they gambled much more than they actually did. Age, sex, and gambling behavior were correlated with the perceptions. The extent of misperception was greatest among monthly gamblers, whereas non-gamblers and daily gamblers were more accurate in their perceptions. Estimations of peers’ gambling frequency were more accurate in boys than in girls and among those aged 12 years than among older adolescents. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that adolescent gambling prevention efforts could benefit from adopting a social norms approach; that is, correcting gambling-related misperceptions might discourage gambling and protect adolescents from adopting more severe gambling patterns.
Mobile Findex: Facilitating Information Access in Mobile Web Search with Automatic Result Clustering
Tomi Heimonen
Advances in Human-Computer Interaction , 2008, DOI: 10.1155/2008/680640
Abstract: Designing an effective mobile search user interface is challenging, as interacting with the results is often complicated by the lack of available screen space and limited interaction methods. We present Mobile Findex, a mobile search user interface that uses automatically computed result clusters to provide the user with an overview of the result set. In addition, it utilizes a focus-plus-context result list presentation combined with an intuitive browsing method to aid the user in the evaluation of results. A user study with 16 participants was carried out to evaluate Mobile Findex. Subjective evaluations show that Mobile Findex was clearly preferred by the participants over the traditional ranked result list in terms of ease of finding relevant results, suitability to tasks, and perceived efficiency. While the use of categories resulted in a lower rate of nonrelevant result selections and better precision in some tasks, an overall significant difference in search performance was not observed.
