In celebration of Women’s History Month, Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum features Edavaleth Kakkat Janaki Ammal. She was born in 1897 and received a college degree, when most women in India did not finish high school. She was the first female to get a PhD in botany in the United States.
