# plot.mtm: Compute and plot the multitaper spectrum estimate In multitaper: Spectral Analysis Tools using the Multitaper Method

## Description

Plots the multitaper spectral estimate and the multitaper F-test.

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ```## S3 method for class 'mtm' plot(x, jackknife = FALSE, Ftest = FALSE, ftbase = 1.01, siglines = NULL, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `x` An object of the class mtm generated by spec.mtm. `jackknife` Boolean variable indicating if jackknife confidence intervals should be plotted, only applies if Ftest=FALSE. `Ftest` Boolean variable indicating if the multitaper harmonic F-test should be plotted instead of the spectrum. `ftbase` Lowest value to be plotted when the F-test is plotted. When Ftest = TRUE, max(ftestvalue, ftbase) is plotted. `siglines` Vector of significance values (as probabilities, 0.0 to 1.0) to plot as horizontal significance lines on the F-test plot. `...` Arguments to be passed to methods, such as graphical parameters (see 'par').

## Details

The value log can be set to “yes” (default), “no”, or “dB” as in the function plot.spec.
