Alligator Reef growth limitation
Conceptual diagram illustrating Alligator Reef, which is limited in growth by the amount of exposed Pleistocene bedrock. The washing effect of water through the tidal pass has exposed peat and sandy sediments upon which coral reefs cannot become established. Diagram from "Tropical Connections: South Florida's marine environment" (pg. 190) - http://ian.umces.edu/press/publications/374/
