The dynamics of wildlife populations can differ between net exporters (sources) to net importers (sinks). These phenomena, the outcomes of demographic processes have been described and illustrated in a graphical model (the compensation axis). The distribution of a species in a landscape can have many characteristics from continuous to patchy. Population dynamics and distribution are fundamental properties of a species that need to be defined for management in a landscape setting. A graphic model is described that combines the concepts of sources, sinks and distribution. The implications for wildlife management are described.
