Notorious among whom?[edit]

Surely Corner has not gained notoriety among creationists for that partial quotation when it seems to favour their stance? It would be among scientists where any percieved notoriety might lie whereas within creationist circles Corner's name and partial statement would be clasped to the collective bosom as glady as any supportive biblical passage.

Is his work still considered accurate?[edit]

I came here because I'm reading his Life of Plants, and it was written in the sixties, and I'm wondering how much of its content is consistent with contemporary knowledge, and how much has been disproven. It would be useful to have a section that discusses how well his work holds up. 72.1.195.4 (talk) 16:47, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
