Could something like "reflective coevolution" capture the process you=
 are describing?

>From Wikipedia:
In biology, coevolution is "the change of a biological object trigger
ed by the change of a related object." Coevolution can occur at many 
biological levels: it can be as microscopic as correlated mutations 
between amino acids in a protein, or as macroscopic as covarying 
traits between different species in an environment. Each party in a 
coevolutionary relationship exerts selective pressures on the other, 
thereby affecting each other's evolution.
