    Well there are a few terms this could apply to - so I would strongly suggest consulting your lecture or class notes (do you have any?). There is co-evolution (what does this suggest to you?), it may not be this option as coevolution isn't necessarily an "evolutionary arms race", like in this example. It could also be an example of the "red queen hypothesis" - which it might be a good idea for you to take a read of: http://www.indiana.edu/~curtweb/Research/Red_Queen%20hyp.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_queen_hypothesis
