Paleogenetics was actualized in the 1980s to permit the experimental test of ‘just so stories’ emerging from molecular evolution. Paleogenetics has since grown to support the development of interconnected models for life, from the molecule to the ecosystem. This chapter reviews tools to manage ambiguities in paleogenetics, and how paleogenetics was applied to understand the emerging role of alcohol in the Cretaceous.

Keywords:   alcohol, model, life, paleogenetics, Cretaceous
