between presence of bacteria in uterus and reproductive disorders and complications in pregnancy [ 3 , 4 ]. Presence of bacteria modulates the immune system in endometrium, which is an important factor for proper function of uterine mucosa [ 5 , 6 ]. Bacteria can also influence morphology of endometrial cells and prevent penetration and propagation of pathogenic species. Therefore, the endometrial microbiome contributes significantly to endometrial receptivity prior to embryo implantation, decidualization and proper development of placenta [ 7 , 8 ].

Unintentional Receptive Ecumenism: From Ecclesial Margins to Ecumenical Exemplar – A New Zealand Case Study Douglas Pratt* The Community Church of St John the Evangelist, situated on a relatively remote island off the east coast of New Zealand, is a unique ecumenical venture supported by the Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Presbyterian Churches. This paper describes and situates this venture and discusses its development and modus vivendi in light of the paradigm of receptive ecumenism. This paradigm did not feature in the thinking of those who

The importance of collocations in second language learning has been recognized in the past few decades. There have been numerous studies in L2 acquisition research that investigated how the knowledge and use of collocations at different levels of proficiency affect learners’ communicative competence and language performance. Moreover, it seems important to mention that most of the studies investigating the collocational knowledge of students learning English as their L2, indicated students’ poor performance (Fayez-Hussein 1990; Aghbar 1990; Bahns and Eldaw 1993; Stubbs 2002; Wray 2002; Nasselhauf 2005; Ozaki 2011). The aim of this paper is to explain the notion of collocation as well as its most common classification, and to point out the importance of its proper use for English language students who are native speakers of the Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS) language. Furthermore, this study examines the productive and receptive knowledge of lexical collocations in order to access students’ collocational competence. The results indicate students’ poor collocational knowledge. This can be due to the fact that collocations of the language students are learning are interfering with the collocations of their mother tongue, but also due to the way students are taught English (vocabulary negligence in comparison with grammar and unawareness of the importance of collocations in language learning).

Reproductive phenology was studied in a Pinus radiata seed orchard, located in northern Spain. Timing of flowering was determined on the basis of data recorded by visual observations made in 2000, 2001 and 2002. The genetic and environmental factors affecting female and male phenology, as well as reproductive synchronization, were studied. The dates of beginning of the receptive phase and pollen shedding varied greatly from year to year but the variation on the sum of degree-days was low. In general, the flowering periods of the different clones overlapped. The clonal differences in the phenology of receptivity and pollen shedding were in most cases statistically significant. The time needed to reach flowering stages was under strong genetic control. Genetic control was stronger for the female than the male flowering process. However, correlations between years were stronger for male than for female flowering phenology. The male flowering clones that best synchronized with the females appeared to be those that started flowering earlier. The phenological overlap index varied greatly among clones, whether male or female, and also among years.


Sustainable tourism implies establishing a positive relationship and link between tourism development and environmental protection, i.e achieving a full harmony between economic and environmental interests. Tourism that is based on respect for ecological interests can ensure the constant maintenance of balance in the natural environment and tourism development. Building a private accommodation association, as one of the aspects of sustainable tourism, ensures the long-term sustainability that is needed for the destination of Budva, due to the large number of problems it encounters, starting from the gray business zone to the very poor quality private accommodation, which is higher than in basic accommodation, which should be the basis of tourism development. In view of the given problem, the subject of research of this paper is the direction in which the receptive factors in the destination of Budva should be developed, with reference to the basic and complementary accommodation units.

The aim of the research is to provide a solution for the currently unfavorable receptive situation in the destination, with special focus on diffused and integral models of private accommodation.


The present study employed a serial forced choice inductive inference paradigm to test whether rural and urban 5-year-olds varying in SES rely on the representation of living things in extending new knowledge. Sixty-five children learned that humans possess a novel internal property and, in a series of test trials, had to decide whether to attribute the property to an inanimate living thing or to an artifact. Additionally, the size of children’s receptive vocabulary was assessed. This study provides the first evidence that those 5-year-olds who have access to rich nature and who have acquired a high level of receptive vocabulary do rely on living kinds in induction in a forced choice task. The study further underscores the necessity to include children with diverse backgrounds in research on the development of biological knowledge. It also provides new evidence that general cognitive ability links to advances in children’s biological understanding.
