Abstract: Collection of 8 articles presents synthesis of current understanding of Antarctic dry valleys from martian analogue perspective that also informs overall understanding of life in extreme environments on Earth. Topics include microclimate-related geomorphology; pedology and soil formation; cryptoendolithic microbial ecosystem; ecosystems of streams, saline lakes and ponds; biogeochemistry and hydrology of glaciers; microbial diversity; and high-altitude, subsurface, desert and polar analogues to Mars.
