Dealing with the subject of the acclimatisation of animals, in the report of the proceedings of the Sixth Annual Conference of Producers of W. A., an article by Mr. R. Helms, contains the following remarks :-“I am very much opposed to indiscriminate acclimatisation regarding reputed beneficial animals. With the best meant intentions great bunglings have been committed, of which Australia may furnish sufficient examples. Even in connection with the acclimatisation of humble bees, this work has been bungled. The two species introduced into New Zealand are Bombus terrestris and B. hortorum. The first is useless for the fertilisation of clover because it is one of the two species whose tongue is too short for reaching the nectaries, and, as already stated, it bites holes at the base of flowers, and B. hortorum, according to Hermann Muller, the famous observer and author on the fertilisation of flowers by insects, never visits red clover in Germany. It appears, however, that in New Zealand this insect has taken to visiting clover, which, if true, has proved that the wellintentioned, though bungliny acclimatisation of it, has been a success against all rational expectation."
Publications for the library should be addressed to the hon. librarian at the college.
