About the book:

Life on Mars would face challenges that are not so different from those faced by organisms in Earth's extreme environments. This book delves into the limits faced by all life by examining the adaptations necessary to survive extreme environments. It proceeds from absolute deserts like the Atacama to the tops of giant mountains like Makalu, exploring the uniting principles behind the limitations to life. The book then applies these principles to the possibility of life on Mars. For ease of reference, it contains species lists and place-name lists with coordinates, as well as a glossary and an extensive reference list.
