Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me out with the following question given to
me as by my professor.	They are of the many questions concerning the terms
"mesohaline", "polyhaline" and "oligohaline".  He wants me to find out who
first coined those terms and what do their perfixes mean in terms of water
salinity. I have tried numerous sources but they only give me their
scientific definitions but did not say who actually "coined" them.  Any help
is greatly appreciated. Khimmy
