The influence of environmental conditions on the specifics of the process of ossification of the skull of the fingerlings of the common newt depending on the degree of urbanization is discussed. It was found that degree of sagittal suture closure in the cranial skeleton of Lissotriton vulgaris (Linnaeus, 1758) post-metamorphic individuals is directly dependent on the mineralization of the surface waters in which the common newt developed. The accumulating character of urban ecosystems promotes strengthening of mineral metabolism of juveniles due to the calciphilous animals, which are abundantly present in their diet. This attendant factor accelerates the formation of cranial ossifications in animals from populations of the urban agglomeration residential part.
