If the surplus population of the source is large and the per capita deficit in the sink is small, only a small fraction of the total population will occur in areas where local reproduction is sufficient to compensate for local mortality, and the realized niche may be larger than the fundamental niche.

Ecological Processes That Affect Populations in Complex Landscapes
We describe a general framework for understanding the ecological processes that operate at landscape scales. The composition of habitat types in a landscape and the physiognomic or spatialExpand
On the relationship between niche and distribution
Hutchinson’s niche concept can be modified to incorporate the influences of niche width, habitat availability and dispersal, as well as interspecific competition per se, and a simulation model called NICHE is introduced that embodies many of Hutchinson's original niche concepts and is used to predict patterns of species distribution.

Optimal Foraging: A Selective Review of Theory and Tests
The general conclusion is that the simple models so far formulated are supported are supported reasonably well by available data and that the author is optimistic about the value both now and in the future of optimal foraging theory. Expand
Sources, Sinks, and Habitat Selection: A Landscape Perspective on Population Dynamics
The model allows us to compare the relative contribution of different types of habitats to a species' growth rate and population size and predict how the loss of habitat of a particular type may affect a population. Expand

The Sustainable Biosphere Initiative: An Ecological Research Agenda: A Report from the Ecological Society of America
In this document, the Ecological Society of America proposes the Sustainable Biosphere Initiative (SBI), an initiative that focuses on the necessary role of ecological science in the wise managementExpand
Population Dynamics in Complex Landscapes: A Case Study.
A model designed to elucidate the effects of landscape-level variation in habitat dispersion on the size and extinction probability of avian populations in a region managed for timber production and results suggest that variation in demographic variables affects population size more than variation in dispersal ability.

Ecology and management of a forested landscape : fifty years on the Savannah River Site
Can land degraded by centuries of agriculture be restored to something approaching its original productivity and diversity? This book tells the story of fifty years of restoration and management ofExpand
