Is there any robust data that can support any robust conclusions here?

The limitations of the data, two days of predation simulation and a 10 day mineralization test, should preclude making any conclusions. The reviewers should have caught this before publishing and either required more data, perhaps another year, or should have limited the extrapolation and far-reaching conclusions made by the authors.

Thank you for your comment. Reviewers did identify these limitations and we addressed them by providing details on the methods used in measurement of the two ES. We cautiously applied this valuation to global estimation of ES and provided caveats, as listed in the article itself. We agree, more data on measurements in different seasons will help improve valuation.
