The nature of a river bed, in addition to water chemical parameters, is one of the main factors influencing the occurrence and development of aquatic flora and fauna. Heterogeneous in terms of the occurrence of natural morphological forms and elements, a habitat shows a high potential as a place where different organisms can settle in. This paper focuses on the presentation of the diversity of river habitats, depending on the altitude type of basins. The material for the analysis came from studies conducted in the catchment of the Wel River (lowland river) in 2009 and the Skawica River (mountain river) in 2011. The studies demonstrated differences in the characteristics of lowland and mountain river catchments including types of flows and river bed substrate. Factor analyses indicated trees and accompanying elements as the main factor differentiating habitat conditions in the studied river catchments. Flows and river bed material differentiate the environment of the mountain watercourses to a lesser extent than that of the lowland watercourses. The hydromorphological condition was indicated only as the third factor which differentiates a habitat for organisms.
