In their recent synopsis, Loke and Chisholm (Ecology Letters, 25, 2269–2288, 2022) present an overview of habitat complexity metrics for ecologists. They provide a review and some sound advice. However, we found several of their analyses and opinions misleading. This technical note provides a different perspective on the complexity metrics assessed.
