Can soil be replenished after a debilitating drought?

    Yes, soil is naturally replenished after droughts through a process known as ecological succession. After a drought, much of the plant life dies and so animals cannot stay. The barren grounds however are soon busy with activity as microorganisms, bacteria and plant seeds begin to grow. Mostly weeds at first, but over time, the weeds will begin to replenish the soil to the point where more sustainable grasses and shrubs can grow. Now herbivores can return to graze, as can predators to hunt.
