Fominykh Russian Research Institute for Integrated Use and Conservation of Water Resources, ul. Mira 23, Yekaterinburg, 620049 Russia Received November 29, 2006 DOI: 10.1134/S1067413608020124 Key words: laboratory experiment, larval development, pH, amphibians. In the fauna of urban areas, amphibians are one of tions and at constant temperature (18–20°C). Thus, the most vulnerable components, as they are tightly developing eggs prior to the hatching of larvae were not connected with spawning grounds and their larvae are exposed to the inﬂuence of alkaline water. The larvae of highly sensitive to water quality. In this context, it is of L. vulgaris and S. keyserlingii at all stages were fed interest to study the effect of high water pH on early exclusively live feed. The larvae of R. temporaria stages of amphibian ontogeny. There are several publi- received a mixed diet of ground nettle leaves and dry cations dealing
