The level of physical development of children and adolescents determines the reproductive, morphofunctional status of the future generation and reflects the influence of climatic, socio-economic living conditions in the region. The growing part of the population is most sensitive to environmental factors, so it is important to study the features of growth and development of children and adolescents living in environmentally unfavorable conditions. In the spring of 2022, an anthropometric survey of 139 15-year-old girls living in the city of Nukus, Muynak and Ellikkalinsky districts of the Republic of Karakalpakstan was conducted. The results of the study coincided with the literature data and showed that representatives of the Muynak district, which is an ecological disaster zone, have a body mass deficit and the values of the studied morphofunctional indicators (body length, body weight, chest circumference, waist circumference, hip circumference) are lower than those of their peers living in another area.
