Systematic sampling is used when you're measuring how species abundance or biodiversity changes with a change in an abiotic factor. For example: measuring the abundance of seaweed as you go from a higher depth of water to a shallow depth (as in from a certain depth in the sea till you reach the shore). Also across sand dunes or measuring the number of species in each quadrant as you go from a path outwards to see how species richness/biodiversity changes with trampling.
Sorry if this makes no sense lol I haven't looked at this since May, but hopefully it was somewhat helpful.

Tysm, it did make sense to me a bit
What does it mean by ecological examples of systematic sampling?

When you said 'also across sand dunes...' thats a different example right?

Yeah across the sand dunes was a separate example cuz you can use systematic sampling to see how species distribution/richness/abundance changes depending on whether you're at the top of a sand dune or in between the sand dunes.
'Ecological' just means relating to living organisms and their environment/surroundings.
