The McMurdo Dry Valleys present a stunning ice-free landscape in Antarctica. They form the coldest and driest desert on earth and so have been used by astrobiologists to guide the search for life on the cold dry surface of Mars. In this talk Steve Pointing, Director of the Institute for Applied Ecology New Zealand at AUT, will present a visual journey into this unusual habitat and discuss whether Antarctic life could survive on Mars.

This exhibition talk is presented for Elusive Earth: Refined Images of Antarctica.
