Abstract: Defining and quantifying drought is essential when studying ecosystem responses to such events. Yet, many studies lack either a clear definition of drought, and/or erroneously assume drought under conditions within the range of “normal climatic variability” (c.f. Slette et al., 2019). To improve the general characterization of drought conditions in ecological studies, Slette et al. (2019) propose that drought studies should consistently relate to the local climatic context, assessing whether reported drought periods actually constitute extremes in water availability.
