Does anyone know the answer?

A question from Fred Gould:

Density dependence or just food limitation – Does anyone know of studies that can determine if the long length of development and small size of adult Aedes coming from containers in natural situations is due to competition among the larvae in the containers for food, or just due to the food resources being so diluted in the containers that each larva has a hard time filtering enough water to get sufficient nutrients?

If you know the answer, leave a comment on his blog.
