Sample Size Unit: The unit of measurement of the size (time duration, length, area, or volume) of a sample in a sampling event.

Notes: For discussion see http://terms.tdwg.org/wiki/dwc:sampleSizeUnit.

Example(s): A sampleSizeUnit must have a corresponding sampleSizeValue, e.g., “5" for sampleSizeValue with "metre” for sampleSizeUnit. Examples: “minute”, “hour”, “day, “metre”, “square metre”, “cubic metre”. Recommended best practice is to use a controlled vocabulary such as the Ontology of Units of Measure (http://www.wurvoc.org/vocabularies/om-1.8/) of SI units, derived units, or other non-SI units accepted for use within the SI (e.g., minute, hour, day, litre).
