The intersections of beta-Voronoi, beta-prime-Voronoi and Gaussian-Voronoi tessellations in Rd with an -dimensional affine subspaces, 1d1, are shown to be random tessellations of the same type but with different model parameters. In particular, the intersection of a classical Poisson-Voronoi tessellation with an affine subspace is shown to have the same distribution as a certain beta-Voronoi tessellation. The geometric properties of the typical cell and, more generally, typical k-faces, of the sectional Poisson-Voronoi tessellation are studied in detail. It is proved that in high dimensions, that is as d, the intersection of the d-dimensional Poison-Voronoi tessellation with an affine subspace of fixed dimension converges to the -dimensional Gaussian-Voronoi tessellation.
