Summary: The possibility of the usage of environmental condition evaluation by the level of fluctuating asymmetry in anuram amphibians is discussed. On the basis of original results and literature cited the conclusion is made that similar studies must be provided with the thought-over choice of studied objects and used characteristics as well as by the objective search of the causes with the account of all the assemblage of ecological factors acting on the development of an organism.
