Over the past decades, sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) has become a powerful tool in paleoecology and is now largely used to track past long-term changes in terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity. The sedaDNA scientific society aims to provide tools to transmit information about current sedaDNA research, promote best practices and increase collaborations between research groups.
