This booklet offers the textual content of all papers and edited discus­ sions, in addition to the contributions made through numerous people who have been not able ·to attend the Symposium. the belief of preserving the Symposium advanced following my presenta­ tion of a paper to the Animal habit Society in 1965 [2] at the use of house through psychiatric sufferers. contributors in attendance at that ses­ sion, chaired through G. Gottlieb, shared his curiosity in my compilation of human information provided in a measurable spatial context. This plea­ sant event persuaded me dialogue of area should be shared as a body of reference which can open avenues of communica­ tion among behavioral scientists, the layout group, and the de­ cision makers in our society.

I found in Panama, however. an example of a purely "functional" territory, maintained without overt aggressive displays. Such a functional territory is the core area in the home range of a band of coatis, Nasua narica [10]. Each band of females and young males spent about 80% of the time in a core area which included only about 40% of the band's home range. Although the home ranges of neighboring bands overlap freely, even into the core areas, the core areas themselves do not overlap. Even when two bands meet in the core area of one band, there is, at most, fleeting hostility, primarily among the juveniles.

But they retreat to their homes, heal their wounds, and then out they go again. So much for there not being a specific drive for fighting. There is, even in animals which have had no relevant childhood experience. In fact, such animals lust after a good fight more than the others. A single male kitten of a female cat is, when mature, usually more aggressive than one raised with siblings. The two principles working toward a balance establish a coherent community. The cats of such an area are not strictly solitary but also have their social gatherings.
