Abstract

The aim of work is to analyse whether the existing interenvironmental differences in physical fitness are connected mainly with the level of morphological advancement or whether the place of residence decidedly affects the level of the child's functional development, differentiating the populations of peers independently of their state of somatic development. Therefore, the functional traits were subjected to relativization, taking body height as the basic measure of developmental advancement.
