bar.group {agricolae}R Documentation

Plotting the multiple comparison of means

Description

It plots bars of the averages of treatments to compare. It uses the objects generated by a procedure of comparison like LSD, HSD, Kruskall, Waller-Duncan, Friedman or Durbin. It can also display the 'average' value over each bar in a bar chart.

Usage

bar.group(x, horiz = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

Object created by a test of comparison

horiz

Horizontal or vertical bars

...

Parameters of the function barplot()

Details

x: data frame formed by 5 columns: name of the bars, height and level of the bar.

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

# Example 1
library(agricolae)

model<-aov(yield~virus,data=sweetpotato)
comparison<- LSD.test(model,"virus",alpha=0.01,group=TRUE)
print(comparison$groups)

# Example 2
library(agricolae)
x <- 1:4
y <- c(0.29, 0.44, 0.09, 0.49)
xy <- data.frame(x,y,y)
