Leigh Van Valen proposed the hypothesis to explain the "Law of Extinction",[1] showing that, in many populations, the probability of extinction does not depend on the lifetime of the population, instead being constant over millions of years for a given population. This could be explained by the coevolution of species. Indeed, an adaptation in a population of one species (e.g. predators, parasites) may change the natural selection pressure on a population of another species (e.g. prey, hosts), giving rise to an antagonistic coevolution. If this positive feedback occurs reciprocally, a potential dynamic coevolution may result.[3]
