Many insects are known to communicate with percussive vibration and vibrations transduced with acoustic songs via plant tissue. Artificial percussive vibrations degrade in acceleration and velocity away from a vibration source along plant stems; the free and distorting and loosing energy faster than the fixed end. Woody stemmed plants vibrate within a narrow frequency band and thus transmit signals further than fleshy ones.
