conclusion, we have five populations; but populations 2, 3, and 4 are subpopulations of a larger, linked, metapopulation. If we assume that population 4 can maintain itself only because of immigration from population 3, then we can say that population 3 is a source and population 4 is a sink. Population 3 might also be a constant source of immigration to population 2. If there is enough mixing between the populations, it is possible that over time, population 2 will become genetically indistinguishable from population 3. Then we will have only four main populations: 1, 5, (2+3), and 4, with (2+3) and 4 forming a metapopulation.
