Introduction: The search for signs of past or ex-tant life on Mars is a high priority for future Mars exploration [e.g., 1]. This search will likely be undertaken with a variety of landed and orbital missions. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA), through its Analogue Missions program, supported an analogue mission designed to simulate a Mars micro-rover mission(More)

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA), through its Analogue Missions program, supported a microrover-based analogue mission designed to simulate a Mars rover mission geared toward identifying and characterizing methane emissions on Mars. The analogue mission included two, progressively more complex, deployments in open-pit asbestos mines where methane can be(More)
Terrestrial ecosystems are heterogeneous habitat mosaics of varying vegetation types that are differentially affected by climate change. Arctic plant communities, for example, are changing faster in moist habitats than in dry habitats and abiotic changes like snowmelt vary locally among habitats. Such differences between habitats may influence the effects(More)
