I wonder if we have created a false dichotomy here. The aquatic
theory meshes quite nicely with other theories if you establish a
chronology that statest that we started out in the trees, moved to
the shoreline, and then to the open plains. If we had moved directly
from the trees to the savannah, the physical changes previously
discussed may not have taken place.
