Abstract

Holding a conference on Landtype Associations in Madison seems appropriate given the amount of research and application on ecological classification that has taken place here and elsewhere within the region. In fact, a previous conference held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in March 1984 on ecosystem classification entitled "Forest Land Classifications: Experiences, Problems, Perspectives" provides a useful framework for summarizing the current meeting and, more specifically, a benchmark for assessing the advances in the development and application of ecosystem classification.
