We report similarities and differences of the transport features in the spin density wave (SDW) and in the field induced SDW (FISDW) phases of the quasi one-dimensional compound (TMTSF)2PF6. As temperature decreases below \approx 2 K, the resistance in both phases exhibits a maximum and a subsequent strong drop. However, the characteristic temperature of the R(T) maximum and its scaling behavior in different magnetic fields B evidence that the non-monotonic R(T) dependences have different origin in SDW and FISDW regions of the phase diagram. We also found that the borderline T0(B,P) which divides the FISDW region of the P-B-T-phase diagram into the hysteresis and non-hysteresis domains, terminates in the N=1 sub-phase; the borderline has thus no extension to the SDW N=0 phase.
