Abstract
An anthropological investigation of Montenegrin citizens was conducted in three places of Northwest Bačka: Lovćenac, Sivac and Crvenka. The investigation included 82 male and 95 female subjects, with the average age of 43.24 and 41.71 years, respectively. In total, 12 morphological characteristics were examined, including the vital capacity of lungs phenylthiocarbamide sensitivity and the ability to distinguish colors. The results have shown that, in relation with other inhabitants of Vojvodina Montenegrins of both sexes are characterized with significantly greater values of the height and arm and leg length. In comparison with previous investigations of Montenegrins in Vojvodina (Bozic V. 1976), the acceleration of height has been observed only in females (1.74cm). Montenegrins of both sexes are also characterised with higher values of all head dimensions. The means of cephalic and nasal index (males 85.18, females 84.75 and males 62.93, females 60.61, respectively) have shown that the largest number of subjects, both males and females, are brachicephalic and leptorinious. The most of males are obese while females are normally nourished. The data are in compliance with WHR index which in males exceeds the critical point and indicates that in these subjects the accumulation of wet tissue is more present in upper parts of body. The average of vital lung capacity equals 3397.56ml in males and 2036.84ml in females. Daltonism has been observed only in male subjects (8.54%), and the percentage of those insensitive to the bitter taste of phenylthiocarbamid is the same in both sexes (23%).
