Questions related to Magento collections

In general, magento collections are classes that contain a list of other objects (Varien_Data_Collection).

Varien_Data_Collection has two direct child classes, Varien_Data_Collection_Filesystem (used to scan directories on the file system) and Varien_Data_Collection_Db (used to load objects from the database)

The database collections are extended by Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Db_Collection_Abstract that handles standard Magento models and Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Collection_Abstract that handles EAV models.
