Comments P.6 left column 2nd paragraph: "Probably the fastest communicating signal moves through plant tissues at about 1 m/sec and the slowest at about 1 cm/hour for some hormones. But most average 1–8 mm/sec through the vascular system. The action potential was first reported over a century ago in the sensitive Mimosa and even earlier in the Venus fly trap [ref 39]. Mechanical signals may operate directly through mechano-sensitive calcium channels [refs 45, 57]."
