Playbacks are one of the most useful experimental tools in animal communication research. Playbacks of substrate vibrations present special challenges, but conducting high-fidelity vibrational playbacks is not difficult and depends less on the specific equipment used than on avoiding some common pitfalls. We review the major issues, describing both the problems and a range of solutions. Our focus is on playback through living plants, but most of the issues apply to playback through other… Expand
