I am designing an experiment where I want to sample a region 5 different habitat types in order to compare density of "something" across them. The habitats have defined and differing sizes - should the number of samples taken within each habitat reflect the size OR should each habitat have the same number of samples taken within it?

i.e. if habitat 1 has an area of 1km^2 and habitat 2 has an area of 2km^2, should I take 2x the samples in habitat 2?
