Drought effects on organisim and enviornment

it doesn't really have a recover time it ends when percipitation levels has a substantial gain and a large posotive skew. It evects organisims because they die out because the scarcity of water therefore they cant get the nutrients they need so they die.An elephant uses his streangth in his tuscks to suck the water from the trunk of a baboo tree during a large drought or loss of water. Plants turn brown to aviod water loss they store mostiure in their roots until the rainey season comes again.
