Sampling

 

Design-based methods offer the promise of sampling structures in biology without bias.  The fractionator - the serial dilution method of chemistry applied to structures - can be illustrated by estimating the number of times the letter e appears in a book.  Other methods of unbiased sampling include the Cavalieri (volume) and disector (counts).
