(p.7) Chapter One Acclimatization Gets Organized
All Things Harmless, Useful, and Ornamental

This chapter covers the organization and experiment of acclimatization through the example of Edward Wilson. Wilson’s interests in land reform, agriculture, and farming led him to consider the development of the colony and acclimatization. His experience on acclimatization was recorded, written and introduced to the Philosophical Institute of Victoria (PIV) where he explored other scientific interests. Wilson’s acclimatization experiment involved translocating animals such as Murry Cod, alpacas, and wombats. His experiment highlights the establishment of networks and the push for the study of acclimatization.

Keywords:   Edward Wilson, experiment, land reform, agriculture, acclimatization, Philosophical Institute of Victoria (PIV), Murray Cod, Alpaca, Wombat
