L. part. adj. contaminans, contaminating, polluting, referring to the metagenome that was recovered from the Sargasso Sea, but which probably represented a sample contaminant, as ST102 isolates and other Bcc isolates grew very poorly in seawater, suggesting that the open ocean is not a natural habitat of Bcc species (Mahenthiralingam et al., 2006)
