is there difference between the population dynamics and the population distribution?

(Science: epidemiology) The pattern of any process, or the interrelationship of phenomena, which affects growth or change within a population.
the arrangement or spread of people living in a given area; also, how the population of an area is arranged according to variables such as age, race, or sex.

Yes, they are different. TIME is the main factor in the difference between these two terms.
Since a population changes over time, it is said to be "dynamic" so that's where the term population dynamics comes from.
Population dynamics are factors that explain how and why a population changes over time.
Population distribution is a description of the population at a certain point in time. It can be a snapshot of where they people live or maybe a certain characteristic like age or sex of the population. So it's like a freeze-frame description.
