acclimated vs. acclimatised

In some recent fiction books written by American authors, I have seen the word “acclimated” as in “...she took a day to become acclimated to her new area.”

Shouldn’t this word be “acclimatised” or is this a case of American’s using one work and New Zealanders using another, both for the same purpose?
