Description: The title of this conference, ""Views From the Ridge"" suggests a particular scalar view of issues. From the ridge, one obtains a somewhat broad but restricted view of the landscape. Certainly, ""Views From Space"" would provide a larger spatial overview in which landscape pattern becomes a dominant theme. For an aquatic or riparian theme, ""Views From the Valley"" would suggest looking upward to the hillslope and ridges, in contrast to looking down from the ridge. Issues concerning appropriate scale have been prevalent in most of the recent landscape assessments, including the Northwest Forest Plan (FEMAT 1993), the PACFISH (1994) strategy, and, most recently, the Forest Service Roads Analysis (USDA Forest Service 1999) procedure. In all of these efforts, three struggles were common: (1) issue identification and integration of information across multiple disciplines, (2) appropriate spatial scales, and (3) appropriate temporal scales
