Vegetation on Mars

Our   researchers have discovered what looks like  vegetation  on mars   from  an  image  (M08-04688   Prime  Meridian 284.38W) captured by the Malin Space Science Systems Mars Orbiter Camera on-board NASA's Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) orbiter .

Sifting through the 78,000 images we found this extraordinary Mars Orbiter Camera image.  Does this show vegetation ? 
Some we showed it to suggested trees, or some form of moss, or even a kind of ancient coral formation.

The immense amount of data accumulated by this project will keep the scientist busy for years to come.  Ever since these images were released for educational and research purposes, new discoveries are a regular occurance.  Which would not have been possible without the skill and determination of the engineers who built it.  

To those we say - Thank You.
