If Animals Lived on Mars, This is How They Could Do It

Metazoans in the McMurdo Dry Valleys (MCMDV) must cope with multiple environmental stresses that also exist on Mars, including high (and dry) winds, rapid desiccation, and extreme variations in temperature, salinity and water availability. A handful of metazoan species not only persist, but also seemingly thrive in these harsh environments. I will present some of my recent research on the adaptive strategies these organisms have evolved in order to survive extreme environmental stress.
