The processes are ongoing and mostly not well documented. Long‐term records of biotic change can be recovered from sedimentary deposits, but traditional analyses were restricted to organisms that leave behind visible traces and molecular genetic tools were mostly employed on samples that promised good DNA preservation. In this issue of Molecular Ecology, Shaw, Weyrich, Hallegraeff and Cooper (2019) and Gomez Cabrera et al. (2019) present two studies on marine sedimentary records from warm environments, in which they successfully analyze ancient environmental DNA (aeDNA) on a decadal and centennial scale. Notably, the studies were conducted on novel samples with nonoptimal preservation conditions for ancient DNA ‐ historical collections of ship ballast tank sediments from Australia and two coral reef cores spanning up to 750 years (Figure 1) ‐ but yielded a high diversity of taxa. This highlights that aeDNA is a promising tool to globally study biodiversity history on scales of decades to centuries ‐ the timeframe most relevant to human society in the context of both current climate change and direct anthropogenic modifications of the environment.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2019-05</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-10T13:27:18Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Epp, Laura S.</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/46316/1/Epp_2-1az7n68x0beyj4.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46316"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
