Short summary
We found that changes in wintertime and springtime precipitation played a more important role in the interannual variability of mean vegetation greenness while climate warming was mainly responsible for the 30-year positive trend in the magnitudes of mean vegetation greenness in the dryland ecosystems in the US Great Basin during 1982–2011.
