## S3 method for class 'ternary'
plot(x, type = "grid", pch = NA, pos = NULL,
  labels = names(x), showpath = FALSE, bg = NA, col = "cornflowerblue",
  ticks = seq(0, 1, 0.25), ticklength = 0.02, lty = 2, lwd = 1, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class ternary, or a three-column data frame or matrix

type

adds annotations to the ternary diagram, one of either empty, grid, QFL.descriptive, QFL.folk or QFL.dickinson

pch

plot character, see ?par for details (may be a vector)

pos

position of the sample labels relative to the plot symbols if pch != NA

labels

vector of strings to be added to the plot symbols

showpath

if x has class SRDcorrected, and showpath==TRUE, the intermediate values of the SRD correction will be plotted on the ternary diagram as well as the final composition

bg

background colour for the plot symbols (may be a vector)

col

colour to be used for the background lines (if applicable)

ticks

vector of tick values between 0 and 1

ticklength

number between 0 and 1 to mark the length of the ticks

lty

line type for the annotations (see type)

lwd

line thickness for the annotations

...

optional arguments to the generic points function
