Stratified samples represent different levels of random sampling nested within the larger survey area. Stratified sampling can also be done according to the probability of occurrence of sites or objects within the survey unit. For example, if previous work had shown that sites were more likely to occur in forested areas than in grassland, one could oversample the forested unit by looking at, say, 30% or 35% of its area while sampling the grassland at a constant, say, 20%–25%. Oversampling is a useful technique for finding more sites or objects in subunits of restricted size, especially when one also needs a larger sample of items from those subunits for comparative purposes later on.
