plot.pairw {asbio}R Documentation

Plots confidence intervals and/or bars with letters indicating significant differences for objects from class pairw

Description

Provides a utility confidence interval plotting function for objects of class = "pairw", e.g., objects from pairw.anova, pair.fried, and pairw.kw.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'pairw'
plot(x, type = 1, lcol = 1, lty = NULL, lwd = NULL, 
cap.length = 0.1, xlab = "", main = NULL, explanation = TRUE,...)

Arguments

x

An object of class pairw.

type

Two types of plots can be made. Type 1 is a barplot with identical letters over bars if the differences are not significant after adjustment for simultaneous inference. Type 1 plots can be modified using bplot arguments. A type 2 plot shows confidence intervals for true differences.

lcol

Confidence bar line color for a type 2 plot, see par.

lty

Confidence bar line type, see par.

lwd

Confidence bar line width, see par.

cap.length

Widths for caps on interval bars (in inches).

xlab

X-axis label.

main

Main caption. Defaults to a descriptive head.

explanation

Logical. If TRUE (default) provides plot explanation with text.

...

Additional arguments from bplot or barplot for type 1 and 2 graphs, respectively.
