typically excludes enough to prevent formation of a population."
    A very preliminary test of your hypothesis would be to add aphids to the
terrarium onto a plant of identical species and see how they do. "

You're not likely to get very far around here suggesting that someone
actually do some "testing" of a hypothesis...... they'd much rather engage
in thought experiments........  or endless discussions of possibilities of
how much algae can grow on the head of a hydra......<g>
