We formulate, implement and test a robust method of determining sphere size distributions from finite thickness planar sections. The method uses a forward approach in which populations of proposed distributions are tested against the input data and refined using a genetic algorithm. This method is then applied to a real-world data set concerning endo- and exocytotic vesicles in the apical region of tip growing pollen tubes of Arabidopsis thaliana.
