To study the morphofunctional features of females depending on the climatic and geographical conditions of residence is available and relevant. The aim of the study: to identify morphofunctional features of the females living in the highlands of the southern Altai. We evaluated the body length, weight, and mass index; antiradical and antioxidant activity of blood plasma of women 20-59 years old depending on the climatic and geographical area of residence. We also determined the age of menopause in women 40-59 years old in the conditions of the low-mountains and middle-mountains of the Altai. It was found that the body length of women in the Altai middle-mountains was lower and the body mass index was higher than that of women in the low mountains. The period of functioning of the sexual glands in women of the middle-mountains was shorter than in women living in a favorable climate of the low-mountains. The antioxidant and anti-radical activity of blood plasma was reduced in adverse climatic conditions. Consequently, women in the population of southern Altaians living in the middle-mountains with discomfort climate conditions have adaptive signs, which are manifested in morphofunctional parameters.
