This paper discusses relationships among the basic notions that have been important in recent investigations of the ergodicity of volume-preserving partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms. In particular we survey the possible definitions of dynamical coherence and discuss the relationship between dynamical coherence and center bunching.
