Understanding Evolution - Coevolution
United States

The term coevolution is used to describe cases where two (or more) species reciprocally affect each other's evolution. So for example, an evolutionary change in the morphology of a plant, might affect the morphology of an herbivore that eats the plant, which in turn might affect the evolution of the plant, which might affect the evolution of the herbivore...and so on. Coevolution is likely to happen when different species have close ecological

Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) - Coevolution
United States

In a CAS, the parts of the system are massively entangled, such that changes in one part bring about similar changes in other parts. Growth and development of one part of the system are dependent on the growth and development of other parts of the system. This is the essence of co-evolution in human systems. People learn together and from each other as they adapt to interpersonal and environmental conditions of the system. They self-organize
