Plot a Tree-Ring Chronology

Description

This function makes a default plot of a tree-ring chronology from a data.frame of the type produced by chron, chron.ars, chron.stabilized, ssf.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'crn'
plot(x, add.spline = FALSE, nyrs = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

a data.frame of class{crn}.e.g., as produced by chron, chron.ars, chron.stabilized, ssf.

add.spline

a logical flag. Will add a line with a smoothing spline using caps

nyrs

a number giving the rigidity of the smoothing spline. Defaults to 1/3 times the length of the first chronology if nyrs is NULL

...

Additional arguments to pass to plot.

Details

This makes a crude plot of one or more tree-ring chronologies.

Value

None. Invoked for side effect (plot).
