Carl was a well-known plant physiologist and his 1964 book, Plant Growth and Development, has become a classic textbook. He was a prominent and eloquent spokesman for his father's philosophy of a land ethic, incorporating into his own writings, lectures, and work through the Tropical Forestry Initiative and the Finger Lakes Land Trust.

Carl published some 200 scientific papers and five books on plant physiology. He was elected president of the American Society of Plant Physiologists in 1996 and was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Agriculture from Purdue University and two awards from the Royal Galician Academy of Science in Spain. Carl took hundreds of photographs with his father's camera during the family's years at the shack, a rich photographic archive that visitors still enjoy.

Carl passed away at the age of 89 in November 2009, at his home in Ithaca, New York.
