Preservation of biological information in thermal spring deposits - Developing a strategy for the search for fossil life on MarsPaleobiological experience on earth is used here to develop a search strategy for fossil life on Mars.

As a basis for this suggestion, the characteristics of thermal springs are discussed in some detail.
