I am unfamiliar with selection pressure. In a laboratory setting it would be possible to select for individuals with a particular trait, putting selection pressure at its maximum. Being prevented by an external agent from reproducing isnīt what counts in determining whether a new species has formed, though.
If selection pressure is at its maximum, how many generations would it take, I wonder. I donīt think it is known.

Here is an example, with an approximately way how it could work.
