Abstract: The study reviews the two habitat models CASiMiR (microscale) and MesoHABSIM (mesoscale) regarding the aspects scale, data collection, model set-up, handling habitat preferences, result presentation and application. Both models were applied at a river stretch at the upper Inn River in Austria, which provided a basis for closer comparison and analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) of both models. These analyses allowed the identification of the main methodological aspects influencing the habitat assessment within both models.
