We agree with Jansen et al. that a composite movement model provides a better statistical description of mussel movement than any simple movement strategy. This does not undermine the take-home message of our paper, which addresses the feedback between individual movement patterns and spatial complexity. Simple movement strategies provide more insight in the eco-evolutionary analysis and are therefore our model of choice.
