It is still uncertain if there is, or has ever been, life on Mars. Life on Mars would face some unique challenges. These challenges may be similar to those faced by organisms in extreme environments here on Earth. This book explores such places in detail and delves into the adaptations that allow organisms to survive in Earth's most inhospitable places. The author proceeds through extreme environments, including Chile's Atacama and Makalu, the world's fifth highest mountain. The author suggests that such places are a window into the possibility of extraterrestrial life.This groundbreaking b... View more info

Two-thirds of this planet is covered by water inhabited by an incredible variety of living organisms, ranging in size from microbe to whale, and in abundance from scarce to uncountable. Whales and dolphins must surface to breathe, and some fishes occupy surface waters and can easily be seen from boats or shore, but most of the marine bio-profusion is hidden from human eyes, often under thousands of feet and millions of tons of water, which is usually cold, dark, and utterly inhospitable to humans. By definition, the study of marine life has been quantitatively and qualitatively different from ... View more info

Today, as global warming threatens the ice caps' integrity, the polar bear has also come to symbolize the peril that faces all life on earth as a result of harmful human practices. Here, the acclaimed science writer Richard Ellis offers an impassioned and moving statement on behalf of polar bears--and all they stand for. Ellis gives a vivid and brilliantly articulat...
