Most newer quests will place a reward in the Quests > Rewards window (Select a Reward). The Rewards window can be accessed by the EQ button, Quests, Rewards.
A maximum of ten rewards may be saved in the window. Should you have more than ten rewards in the window, you must claim enough to drop to ten or below, or you lose the excess rewards when you zone or camp.
Every time you log in a character, it will show the rewards window if that character has any unclaimed quest rewards.
Most newer quests are placed in the Quest Journal. To bring up the Quest Journal window the default is Alt-Q or you can use the EQ button > Quests > Quest Journal. The maximum number of quests you can have active at once in the Quest Journal appears to be 29 solo quests and one group quest.

Quest level scaling
Some quests increase or decrease the level of the mobs to match the level(s) of the players.
Scales to PC level doesn't mean that NPCs are all the same level as the highest level player in the zone. In zones that use level scaling, NPC levels are an offset from the highest level player in the zone. For instance, if Bob_the_scaling_boss is +5 levels and Joe_the_easy_schmo is -3 levels... If the zone is level 100, Bob is 105 and Joe is 97. If the zone is level 70, Bob is 75 and Joe is 67. If the zone stops scaling at 110, and the highest level player in the zone is 115, Bob will be 115 and Joe will be 107.

Note that for these quests, the maximum level it will scale to is based on the maximum level that characters could obtain at the time the quest was introduced into the game.

LDoN and Heroic scaling
LDoN [Lost Dungeons of Norrath] Adventures used different zone headers, spawns, encounters, NPCs, and loot tables in order to scale. It required a massive amount of design data to implement as all the data was duplicated across each level bracket.
The different leveled versions are 5 levels apart, starting at 20 and ending at 65 (hard). Requesting a hard adventure would give you the next bracket above what the group would normally get and the final 65 (hard) was a special case.
Heroic Adventures use the same NPC files for all levels. A scaling system recalculates their levels, stats, spells, and the rewards so that they are appropriate for the level of the zone. The NPCs will recalculate if the level of the highest level character changes. For example: the highest level character leaving the zone, a higher level character entering the zone, or a character gaining a level. The NPCs can technically scale to any level, though the design side wasn't intended to go below level 65. Also worth noting is that as of a recent update the HAs don't scale any higher than whatever the max level was when the content was introduced.
It's a simple matter to see the Heroic Adventure system in action. Have someone higher level zone into an in-progress HA instance and note how the levels of the NPCs change.
