                         drought on tree mortality, growth or ecosystem functioning in 
                         tropical rainforests. Drought plays a major role in shaping 
                         tropical rainforests and the response mechanisms are highly 
                         diverse and complex. The numerous gaps identified here require the 
                         international scientific community to combine efforts in order to 
                         conduct comprehensive studies in tropical rainforests on the three 
                         continents. These results are essential to simulate the future of 
                         these ecosystems under diverse climate scenarios and to predict 
                         the future of the global earth carbon balance. Context Tropical 
                         rainforest ecosystems are characterized by high annual rainfall. 
                         Nevertheless, rainfall regularly fluctuates during the year and 
                         seasonal soil droughts do occur. Over the past decades, a number 
                         of extreme droughts have hit tropical rainforests, not only in 
                         Amazonia but also in Asia and Africa. The influence of drought 
                         events on tree mortality and growth or on ecosystem functioning 
                         (carbon and water fluxes) in tropical rainforest ecosystems has 
                         been studied intensively, but the response mechanisms are complex. 
                         Aims Herein, we review the recent findings related to the response 
                         of tropical forest ecosystems to seasonal and extreme droughts and 
                         the current knowledge about the future of these ecosystems. 
                         Results This review emphasizes the progress made over recent years 
                         and the importance of the studies conducted under extreme drought 
                         conditions or in through-fall exclusion experiments in 
                         understanding the response of these ecosystems. It also points to 
                         the great diversity and complexity of the response of tropical 
                         rainforest ecosystems to drought. Conclusion The numerous gaps 
                         identified here require the international scientific community to 
                         combine efforts in order to conduct comprehensive studies in 
                         tropical forest regions. These results are essential to simulate 
                         the future of these ecosystems under diverse climate scenarios and 
                         to predict the future of the global earth carbon balance.",
