The engineering required for long-term presence on Mars is much more than provision of food, water, air, and power.
Certainly! That is why I wish someone with a similar broad scientific background (and as many contacts in the scientific community) as Alan Weisman would take on such a project. When I read The World Without Us, there were quite a few points I never had considered before. On Mars there must be ten times as many!

It certainly would be fascinating read, but I guess it would be sort of depressing to a large number of SciFi fans.
