This type of evolutionary arms race still results in the co-evolution of the species. Most asymmetrical arms races come from a predator-prey relationship of some sort. For instance, in the predator-prey relationship of lions and zebras, the result is an asymmetrical arms race. The zebras become faster and stronger to escape the lions. Humans are not immune to the evolutionary arms race. In fact, the human species is accumulating adaptations constantly to fight disease. The host-parasite relationship is a good example of an evolutionary arms race that can include humans. As parasites invade the human body, the human immune system will kick in to try to eliminate the parasite. This is the reason why it is important for doctors not to overprescribe antibiotics every time a patient is sick.
In evolutionary biology, an evolutionary arms race is a struggle between competing sets of co-evolving genes, traits, or species, that develop adaptations and counter-adaptations against each other, resembling an arms race. These are often described as examples of positive feedback. The co-evolving gene sets may be in different species, as in an evolutionary arms race between a predator species and its prey (Vermeij, 1987), or a parasite and its host. Co-evolution itself is not necessarily an arms race. For example, mutualism may drive co-operative adaptations in a pair of species. This is the case with certain flowers' ultra-violet color patterns, whose function is to guide bees to the center of the flower and promote pollination. Co-evolution is also interspecific by definition; it excludes intraspecific arms races such as sexual conflict.

For instance, the single offering from Puscifer (a collaboration between Maynard James Keenan and Danny Lohner), "The Undertaker (Renholder Mix)," is an exquisite, four-minute-long consolation prize that does not in any way make up for the remainder of the album.
Evolution (2001) pbs nova. Evolution, Show 4: The Evolutionary Arms Race. From the genius and torment of Charles Darwin to the scientific revolution that spawned the tree of life, from the power of sex to drive evolutionary change to the importance of mass extinctions in the birth of new species, the Evolution series brings this fascinating process to life. The series also explores the emergence of consciousness, the origin and success of humans, and the perceived conflict between science and religion in understanding life on Earth.
Evolutionary arms race facts for kids. Kids Encyclopedia Facts. It is a metaphor drawn from the so-called arms race between the West and the Soviet Union, after the second world war. Evolutonary arms races are a kind of co-evolution. Predator–prey evolution is the classic example. A new twist by the predator must be answered with a new defence by the prey.
Evolutionary arms race. Tyrannosaurs and horned dinosaurs were in a predator prey relationship for over 65 million years. See all clips from Last Killers (5).
