I hear what your saying, but the definition of evolution is quite simply "a change in allele frequency within a population over a period of time". Adaptation (whether it be a light sensing structure such as an eye or a degree of resistance to fluctuation in temperature or some other type of advantage for the organism) is a result of certain genes being selected for or against by the environment.

It sound like you are speaking of speciation (the evolution of a biological species).

Splitting hairs is what science is all about!
