Editor's Note: The Letter of response above by Wade et al. was limited by me to addressing only the new analysis presented in the Letter by Springer et al. (2008). The Letter by Estes et al. on pages 748–754 is the opportunity to rebut this response. These two Letters, which stem from responses to the original paper by Springer et al. 2003 and rebuttals to the responses will be the last Letters published in Marine Mammal Science in this string of responses. The Journal will look forward to papers that provide new data that address the hypotheses and questions raised by these various publications.
