A jungle is land covered with dense forest and tangled vegetation, usually in tropical climates. Application of the term has varied greatly during the past recent centuries. Before the 1970s, tropical forests were generally referred to as jungles, but this terminology has fallen out of usage. Etymology The word jungle originates from the Sanskrit word jagala, meaning rough and arid. It came into the English language via Bengali in the 18th century. Jgala has also been variously transcribed in English as jangal, jangla, jungal, and jugala. Although the Sanskrit word refers to dry land, it has been suggested that an Anglo-Indian interpretation led to its connotation as a dense 'tangled thicket' while others have argued that a cognate word in Bengali derived from Persian (Jangal), did refer to forests. The term is prevalent in many languages of the Indian subcontinent, and the Iranian Plateau, where it is commonly used to refer to the plant growth replacing primeval forest or to the unkempt tropical vegetation that takes over abandoned areas. Wildlife Because jungles occur on all inhabited landmasses and may incorporate numerous vegetation and land types in different climatic zones, the wildlife of jungles cannot be straightforwardly defined. Varying usage = As dense and tangled vegetation = One of the most common meanings of jungle is land overgrown with tangled vegetation at ground level, especially in the tropics. Typically such vegetation is sufficiently dense to hinder movement by humans, requiring that travellers cut their way through.
