The paper is devoted to the stereological estimation of length and surface area in anisotropic structures. Statistical properties of various estimators are investigated. The relation between estimators based on projections and intersections is studied. Finally an implementation of some estimators in image analysis is described. The paper is partly a review of recent results and is presented in a condensed way. The details including mathematical proofs can be found in the referenced papers.

Keywords : anisotropic fibres and surfaces, intensity estimation, projection measure, variance
