Abstract
This work compared the effect of challenge with Vibrio tapetis, the etiologic agent of brown ring disease (BRD) in clams,
and other bacterial strains on defence-related factors in four bivalve species: Ruditapes philippinarum (highly susceptible to
BRD), R. decussatus (slightly susceptible to BRD), Mercenaria mercenaria and Crassostrea virginica (both non-susceptible
to BRD). Results show that bacterial challenge modulated defence-related factors, namelytotal and differential haemocyte
