Plagiarism

“To steal and pass off as one's own.”

from wikipedia
From Wikipedia…
  • Charles Robert Darwin (12 February1809 – 19 April1882) was an eminent Englishnaturalist[I] who achieved lasting fame by convincing the scientific community that species develop over time from a common origin. His theories explaining this phenomenon through natural and sexual selection are central to the modern understanding of evolution as the unifying theory of the life sciences, essential in biology and important in other disciplines such as anthropology, psychology and philosophy.[1]

  • Example 3:
    • Charles Darwin was an eminent English naturalist born in 1809. He convinced other scientists that species develop over time from a common origin. His arguments were so persuasive because they successfully combined ideas on geography, embryology, paleontology, breeding, anatomy, behavior, anthropology, and many other fields that were previously viewed as unrelated. His ideas have been important in other disciplines such as anthropology, psychology and philosophy.

  • Example 4:
    • Charles Darwin was an “eminent English naturalist” born in 1809 (Wikipedia, 2007). He convinced other scientists “that species develop over time from a common origin” (Wikipedia, 2007). His arguments were so persuasive because they successfully combined “ideas on geography, embryology, paleontology, breeding, anatomy, behavior, anthropology, and many other fields that were previously viewed as unrelated.” His ideas have been “important in other disciplines such as anthropology, psychology and philosophy” (Wikipedia, 2007).

  • Example 5:
    • Charles Darwin was born in England on February 12, 1809 and died April 19, 1882. He was the first scientist to propose natural selection as a plausible mechanism for the evolution of species from a common ancestor. He developed his ideas by comparing the breeding of domestic plants and animals to the patterns of variability found in nature. His hypothesis was widely accepted because it successfully combined ideas from a wide variety of disciplines, including geography, embryology, and paleontology (Charles Darwin, 2007) within a framework of scientific testability.
