A Sampling Frame, which you use in Biology.

It's usually 50x50 and it is used to place on something, such as a field, and its like a metal frame. Within the frame, you count how many and what type of living things there are, and you repeat this process lots of times, to estimate the population size in a large study area.

But, I'm not sure what the scientific name for this is. The Sampling Frame.

Someone help me out here? Thanks  ::)
