x, y, z

A numeric vector giving the x, y and z ternary coordinates of a set of points. If y and z are missing, an attempt is made to interpret x in a suitable way (see grDevices::xyz.coords()).


Further arguments to be passed to graphics::text().


A character vector or expression specifying the text to be written.


ternary_text() is called it for its side-effects.

## Compositional data
coda <- data.frame(
  X = c(20, 60, 20),
  Y = c(20, 20, 60),
  Z = c(60, 20, 20)

## Add text
ternary_plot(NULL, panel.first = ternary_grid())
ternary_text(coda, labels = c("A", "B", "C"), col = "red", cex = 2)
