bar.err {agricolae}R Documentation

Plotting the standard error or standard deviance of a multiple comparison of means

Description

It plots bars of the averages of treatments and standard error or standard deviance. It uses the objects generated by a procedure of comparison like LSD, HSD, Kruskal and Waller-Duncan.

Usage

bar.err(x,variation=c("SE","SD","range","IQR"),horiz=FALSE, bar=TRUE,...)

Arguments

x

object means of the comparisons the LSD.test, HSD.test,...,etc

variation

SE=standard error, range=Max-Min or IQR=interquartil range

horiz

Horizontal or vertical bars

bar

paint bar

...

Parameters of the function barplot()

Details

x: data frame formed by 5 columns: name of the bars, height, level out: LSD.test, HSD, waller.test, scheffe.test, duncan.test, SNK.test, friedman, kruskal, waerden.test and Median.test.

Value

A list with numeric vectors giving the coordinates of all the bar midpoints drawn.

x

eje-1 coordinate

height

eje-2 coordinate by group
