Is mere survival the standard of moral value?

In "The Objectivist Ethics," Ayn Rand says that man's life is the standard of value. What does that mean? Is it mere physical survival? Is it mere quantity of years -- or does the quality of those years matter too? Basically, what is the difference between living and not dying?
