DescriptionFive papers are included that address aspects of quality in forest research. Topics cover (1) the need for a logic of inquiry, illustrated by examining forest fire policy in Western North America, (2) alternative criteria for judging the simplicity of forest models, (3) the identification and analysis of problems and the importance that scientists develop good problem solving skills, (4) a modeling strategy that united opposites, and (5) the importance of cogency in forest research.
