Charles Darwin's ecological experiment on Ascension isle

Interesting article from the BBC here. It describes how Ascension Island was terraformed by Charles Darwin and the Royal Navy, resulting in a unique ecosystem of plants normally not found together. This seems like just the sort of project dear Stephen might have started, had he thought of it.
