This paper links vegetational microlandscapes distinguished on the basis of differentiation of actual vegetation with geobotanical sub-districts defined on the basis of differentiation of potential vegetation. For each of these microlandscapes an actual and potential vegetation, as well as land-use were analyzed; the analysis being performed for an area of ca. 540 km2 of the Vistula River valley. The spatial structure of these microlandscapes was characterized in terms of various landscape metrics. The analysis reveals that comprehensive treatment allows micro-landscapes to be aggregated into typological (and potentially regional) units of a higher rank
