Abstract

By examining the material remnants of the “avian imperial archive” (avian lists, bird skins, eggs, travel writing), this article demonstrates how British military ornithology helped to materialize imaginatively and empirically the British Mediterranean as a transitional region for the physical and cultural acclimatization of British officers en route to and from India and to extend British imperial interests into North Africa. As this article reveals, the production of zoogeography by British military officers in the Mediterranean was coconstituted by imperial military geopolitics
