The oscillation of particles in a medium is the adequate stimulus for specialized receptors. Such receptors can be found in nearly all phyla in the animal kingdom. Specialized sensory hairs in arthropods are used here as an example to show conditions and limits of vibration reception in a medium. The use of this sensory capacity in biologically relevant situations is shown on some well-known examples.
