It is proposed that the sequential sampling design ofKuno (1969) for estimating populations with a fixed level of precision be modified by using σ2=amb for the variance-mean relationship for most field distributions of organisms. This function yields a straight line “stop line” rather than a curve. An example is calculated and used with field data.
