Education and photosynthesis experiments

Matthaei was born in Kensington in a family of German, Swiss and French ancestry She was the daughter of the commission merchant Carl Hermann Ernst Matthaei and the musician Louise Henriette Elizabeth Sueur, and had a brother and three younger sisters, including Louise Howard[1] Matthaei attended North London Collegiate School for Girls and Newnham College, Cambridge, and later worked as assistant to Frederick Blackman, producing significant work on cellular respiration Between 1902 and 1905, Blackman and Matthaei set out to discover the role of temperature in photosynthesis and performed the first such experiments, finding that carbon fixation is based on biochemical reactions which depend on temperature[2] Although the experiment is inaccurately known as the Blackman Reaction, a significant part of the work was carried out by Matthaei and the 1904 paper communicated to the Royal Society by Francis Darwin bears only her name[3]

Agricultural research

In 1905, she married Albert Howard, imperial economic botanist to the government of India The couple invariably did their research together and soon became known as the "Sidney and Beatrice Webb of India" In 1913, Gabrielle Howard became the second imperial economic botanist to the government of India Between 1905 and 1924, the Howards carried out research on crops such as cotton and wheat at their experiment station at Pusa, and ran a fruit experiment station at Quetta from 1912 until 1919 They argued that plants should be studied in the context of their habitat and that food grown in humus-rich soil would be beneficial to health Beginning in 1924, they oversaw the planning and construction of the Institute of Plant Industry at Indore She suddenly died in Genoa shortly before their planned retirement and return to England The next year, her widower married her sister Louise Neither marriage produced children[4]
