Consider the following Plot3D (although the same question might be asked for the 2D case)

Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}]

3D plot

How can I replace the tick labels on the, let's say, x and y axes while keeping the default major and minor ticks (positions and format)?

Rephrased: How can I change the tick labels without changing anything else?

The Mathematica help for Ticks shows an example that replaces the major ticks and assigns new labels, but in doing so (specifying all ticks explicitly) looses the minor ticks.
