We assume that the distribution of "biological objects" (species, family, phyla,) inside a "set" (community, assemblage, etc.) is at random. Although similar assumptions have been put forward by others (see text), our treatment is basically different. Based on a simple algorithm describing the random partition of a set, we obtain the resulting statistical laws characterizing the partition (that is to say: probability density, repartition function and moments). The theoretical results are supported by mathematical simulations of thousands random drawings.
