numeric, vertical adjustment of y-axis-title.

axis.angle.x

angle for x-axis labels

axis.angle.y

angle for y-axis labels

axis.angle

angle for x- and y-axis labels. If set, overrides both axis.angle.x and axis.angle.y

axis.textcolor.x

Color for x-axis labels. If not specified, a default dark gray color palette will be used for the labels.

axis.textcolor.y

axis.linecolor.x

Color of x-axis border

axis.linecolor.y

Color of y-axis border

axis.linecolor

Color for both x- and y-axis borders. If set, overrides both axis.linecolor.x and axis.linecolor.y.

panel.gridcol.x

See panel.gridcol.

panel.gridcol.y

See panel.gridcol.

panel.major.linetype

line type for major grid lines

plot.col

Color of both plot's region border and background. If set, overrides both plot.backcol and plot.bordercol.

plot.margins

numeric vector of length 4, indicating the top, right, bottom and left margin of the plot region.

legend.pos

position of the legend, if a legend is drawn.

legend outside plot

Use "bottom", "top", "left" or "right" to position the legend above, below, on the left or right side of the diagram. Right positioning is default.

legend inside plot

If legend.inside = TRUE, legend can be placed inside plot. Use "top left", "top right", "bottom left" and "bottom right" to position legend in any of these corners, or a two-element numeric vector with values from 0-1. See also legend.inside.

legend.just

justification of legend, relative to its position ("center" or two-element numeric vector with values from 0-1. By default (outside legend), justification is centered. If legend is inside and justification not specified, legend justification is set according to legend position.

legend.inside

logical, use TRUE to put legend inside the plotting area. See legend.pos.
