Since I was gonna delve into the archives of _Nature_ with Waddington's 1941
article "Evolution of developmental systems" (Nature (147): 108-10) I
decided to get some of Sheldrake's old stuff. His 1974 article "The ageing,
growth and death of cells (Nature (250): 381-5) seems innocuous enogh with
no trace of morphic resonance that I could discern. There's also a couple
brief articles from 1968 and 1972 respectively on auxin in plants. He had
published in other journals previous to his books on morphic resonance and
formative causation, but I haven't gotten around to these yet, concentrating
on what was in _Nature_.
Sheldrake AR and Northcote DH. 1968. Production of auxin by detached leaves.
Nature (217): 195
Sheldrake AR. 1972. Polar auxin transport in leaves of monocotyledons.
Nature (238): 352-3
Waddington's article was pretty cool as he talked about Richard
Goldschmidt's heretical _The Material Basis of Evolution_.
