involving a series of reciprocal changes in two or more noninterbreeding populations that have a close ecological relationship and act as agents of natural selection for each other, as the succession of adaptations of a predator for pursuing and of its prey for fleeing or evading.
In biology, coevolution occurs when changes in at least two species' genetic
compositions reciprocally affect each other's evolution. There is evidence for ...
Coevolution. The term coevolution is used to describe cases where two (or more)
species reciprocally affect each other's evolution. So for example, an ...
Co-evolution occurs when, in adapting to their environments, two or more
organisms evolve together. To "make the best of" where they live, organisms

In a coevolutionary relationship, changes experienced by each individual group of organisms is in some manner shaped by or influenced by the other groups of organisms in that relationship.

Coevolution, the process of reciprocal evolutionary change that occurs between
pairs of species or among groups of species as they interact with one another.
COEVOLUTION. First some definitions: coevolution is a change in the genetic
composition of one species (or group) in response to a genetic change in another
This brings up the possiblity that the "environment" itself may be evolving. Two or
more species may in fact coevolve. And coevolution gives rise to some of the ...
Coevolution. When organisms that are ecologically intimate -- for example,
predators and prey, or hosts and parasites -- influence each other's evolution, we
co·ev·o·lu·tion n. The process by which two or more interacting species evolve
together, each changing as a result of changes in the other or others. It occurs, for
