Wildland

This article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by fixing it.

Wildlands are areas of land where the vegetation is permitted to grow and natural forces are permitted to act without significant human interference. Many wildland areas are considered waste land because the area is uneconomic to develop for agriculture. However, ecologists point out that wildlands permit natural biodiversity to develop and these areas of land provide important reservoirs of plants and animals and provide natural habitats for wild flora and fauna that may be difficult to recreate in zoos.

Wildlands can be found in Wilderness Areas.

Also known as Native bush[?] or "the bush" in Australasia.
