From Habitability to Life on Mars
Edited by Nathalie A. Cabrol and‎ Edmond A. Grin
From Habitability to Life on Mars explores the current state of knowledge and questions about the past habitability of Mars and the role that rapid environmental changes may have played in the ability of prebiotic chemistry to transition to life. It investigates the role that such changes may have played in the preservation of biosignatures in the geological record, and what this means for the exploration strategies of this record.

Further, throughout the book, the authors show how the investigation of terrestrial analogs to early Martian habitats under various climates and environmental extremes provide critical clues to understand where, what, and how to search for biosignatures on Mars. The authors present an introduction to the newest developments and state-of-the-art remote and in situ detection strategies and technologies that are being currently developed to support the upcoming ExoMars and Mars 2020 missions. They show how the current orbital and ground exploration is guiding the selection for future landing sites. Finally, From Habitability to Life on Mars will conclude by opening on the critical question of the implications and ethics of finding life on Mars.

Through a unique collection of 14 chapters, this book will provide readers the best information on the most critical questions about habitability and life on Mars, from the people who are actually making the Mars exploration happen.
