Damaging representative plants from five angiosperm families by heating or crushing a small portion of a single leaf results in an electrical change which may spread throughout the shoot. In Mimosa similar changes have previously been identified as variation potentials.
Except in one of the five plants, a variation potential is often accompanied by brief fluctuations which may propagate either basipetally or acropetally and which have many of the properties of action potentials.
