Abstract (EN)What is the role of co-evolution in the adaptation of a population of firms to a hostile environment ? To answer this question, we revisit network sociology starting from Kauffman s biological computer model. We apply a qualitative methodology to update exploitation and exploration mechanisms in nine Japanese interfirm networks. From these results, this article draws a typology of the adaptation forms, distinguishing pack, migratory, herd and colony networks.
