Caption: Margaret Clay Ferguson, US botanist. Ferguson attended the Wellesley College, Massachusetts, United States, where she graduated in botany and chemistry in 1891, receiving her PhD in botany from Cornell University in 1901. She worked on fungi, pines and petunia plants. Her studies revealed how flower colour and pattern do not follow Mendelian laws of inheritance. Ferguson encouraged many women botanists through her teaching.
