Davis (1976), (530) a non-fatal stabbing case that came a century after White and forty years after Braune, was the first case in which a court attempted to carefully define the meaning of "antagonism," and recognized the lack of a proper definition, after so many decades in which courts had used the term more cavalierly.
Gamberg, M., Braune, B., Davey, E., Elkin, B., Hoekstra, P.F., Kennedy, D., Macdonald, C., et al.
The court found Bean to be more similar to Daugherty and Braune than to cases in which severance was held to be unnecessary, because, "In both Daugherty and Braune the trial became more of a contest between the defendants than between the State and an individual defendant.
Braune says Heritage dropped ACT as a client because the relationship was not "mutually beneficial."
These important species can signal changes in the ecosystem that raise research questions (Brook et al., 2009; Braune et al., 2010).

Substantial information concerning the contamination of northern marine food by organochlorines (OCs) is now available (Braune et al.
Mallory, M.L., Allard, K.A., Braune, B.M., Gilchrist, H.G., and Thomas, V.G.
As reported in Arctic terrestrial herbivores (Braune et al., 1999), hexachlorobenzene was the most abundant OC contaminant detected in our study.
Their capacity to accumulate in adipose tissue leads to biomagnification in the food chain, and their concentrations reach highest levels in top predator species (Braune et al.
Mechanisms driving the decline of this species are unknown; hypotheses include contamination from anthropogenic sources (e.g., Braune et al., 2006, 2007), hunting {Stenhouse et al, 2004; Gilchrist and Mallory, 2005), relocation to new breeding sites (deemed unlikely because of the large extent of aerial surveys; Gilchrist and Mallory, 2005), increased predation with the loss of protective ice around nunatak nesting sites, and reduction of ice edges associated with feeding during winter (Krajick, 2003).
Studies have been limited to regional surveys in the 1970s (e.g., Brown et al., 1975), contaminant monitoring (Braune, 2007), a single-season study in the Low Arctic (Gaston, 1988), and a multi-year assessment of breeding biology at one site in Lancaster Sound (Gaston et al., 2005b).
