Scarcity (6)


I believe the answer is:


'scarcity' is the definition.
(dearth is a kind of scarcity)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for dearth that I've seen before include "Lack of resources" , "Shortage, paucity" , "In short supply" , "Hatred (anag) -- shortage" , "Severe lack" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Times, The Mirror and The Independent.
