Co-evolution

Co-evolution (sometimes spelled coevolution) is an evolutionary interaction between two species such that the features of both species determine the evolutionary direction of the other species. For example, the interaction between hummingbirds and the length of the corolla of the flowers they visit. A long hummingbird beak selects for a long corolla tube and a long corolla selects for a long hummingbird beak.
