Naturally not. But there was a point at which the same species
time-line in the space of characteristics (i.e. DNA, chromosomes,
form, etc) bifurcated. The evolutionary line split. One group
evolved in another direction and the other didn't.

There had to be a reason. The "niche" that forced one to change
according to SST/MST is that they left the forest for the
grasslands. AAT says that there was some water nearby and they
took advantage of it for a while.

If the MST people claim that they changed in the forest or
woodlands or "wooded savannah" they have to explain why the
others didn't.

Tom Clarke's comments are correct and his question still hasn't
been answered directly.
