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
that may be difficult to recreate in zoos.
Wildlands can be found in Wilderness Areas.
Wildlands are known as Native bush or "the bush" in Australasia.
