Stratified versus Block

We are trying to distinguish between Stratified Random Sampling and Block
Design. BPS makes the point:

"Blocks and strata both group similar units. We use two different names
only becuase the idea developed separately for sampling and experiments."
pg 214

So what is the party line? Are they the same? Is there a difference?

Thanks in advance,
