The effects of an ongoing drought may result in plant diseases and insect infestations along with increased erosion, a decrease in air quality and degradation of landscape and habitat, along with an increased risk of fire due to drier vegetation. While the environments can quickly bounce back from short-term droughts, it’s the long-term droughts that cause the most damage to not only animal life but plant life too.
