[Extract] The recent paper by Lapointe (1997) on the causes of algal blooms on coral reefs was presented as a test of the hypothesis that the reefs of Jamaica and southeast Florida had exceeded a threshold level of eutrophication that resulted in blooms of benthic algae. We offer this critique to evaluate the logic and efficacy of the tests presented by Lapointe (1997).
