Jungle and Forest

  • What is the difference between Jungle and Forest?
  • The word jungle begins with the word jangala, which means “barren, rarely a tree-growing zone” in Sanskrit. From here, Indians turn into jangal word meaning “desert, forest, barren soil, unplanted soil“. In the colonial years (1776), probably a faulty translation, the English language jungle is entering the opposite way: “the place where trees and other plants grow in a dense, intertwined manner“.


  • Let’s compare the meanings of jungle and forest in the most reliable English words:
  • Forest (Oxford Living English Dictionaries): “A large area covered with chiefly trees and undergrowth.”




  • Forest (Cambridge Dictionary): “A large area of ​​land covered with trees and plants, usually larger than a wood, or trees and plants themselves.”


  • Forest (Merriam-Webster): “a dense growth of trees and underbush covering a large tract.”


  • Jungle (Oxford Living English Dictionaries): “An area of ​​land overgrown with dense forest and tangled vegetation, typically in the tropics.”


  • Jungle (Cambridge Dictionary): “A tropical forest that grows very closely together.”






  • Jungle (Merriam-Webster): “an impenetrable thicket or tangled mass of tropical vegetation.”




  • Difference of “Jungle” and “Forest”
  • As you will see there are obvious differences between the forest and the jungle. But these differences, of course, are not limited to the above. For example, as described in the footnote of Planet Earth II, jungles, which cover less than 6% of the earth’s surface, are home to more than 50% of the world’s land plants and animals. On the other hand, it is not possible to say the same thing for all “forests“; because…


  • Jungle and forest differences
  • The forest is the name given to every kind of land covered with trees, larger than the forest, meaning a small piece of land covered with trees. Jungle is a subspecies of the tropical rainforest, a subspecies of the forest, and all other features can not be equal to the forest, not even in this respect. Claiming reversal is equivalent to saying that constant primate should be called when referring to humans in a book written specially on Homo sapiens. Therefore, it is not important whether people are familiar with this word; Because Planet Earth II’s chapter 3 is about jungles, not about forests.
  • Science goes on accumulating on many mistakes before they verify. Therefore, what constitutes the core of scientific thinking is the two sides – both sides that claim and falsify: a tolerance for the claimant, a criticism for the faltering side.


  • In other words, there is every kind of tree in the place called forest. However, there may not be many different species in the same forest. But there are young trees, vines and plenty of grassy plants in the jungle. The floor is almost entirely covered. While defining the jungle more virgin, wild and unknown; Forrest is calm, tidy and peaceful. There are animals in jungle that you have not even heard of before.
