speciation is when a new species is formed bc of reproductive isolation
and evolution is the gradual change of a species due to different processes e.g natural selection

speciation happens for e.g when there's a physical barrier and the 2 groups separate and seperately reproduce and will eventually be 2 different species bc they've passed on different mutations in each group and will have literal different genitalia so cannot reproduce fertile offspring

speciation - formation of a new species which cannot breed with the original (tortoise and terrapin)

evolution - gradual change in a species over time (giraffe with short necks to giraffes we know of today)
