Freckleton and Rees make three major critical points on our recent paper in TREE: (i) we highlight Cimp, which is a flawed index of competition; (ii) we incorrectly dismiss previous measures of competition as ‘binary tests’; (iii) the question of ‘importance’ of competition depends on the context in which it is being examined, and the measure used should be driven by the question asked. We disagree.
