Dear all,

I would like to create a stacked area chart to show the development of 
species biomass over time. Since it is intended for publication I need 
to prepare in black and white.  I have tried to modify the "stackedPlot" 
function submitted to this list by Christian Lasarczyk on Tue, 16 Aug 
2005 using shading lines rather than colors to distinguish between the 
species. Unfortunately, the result was not very satisfying as the 
options using different angles and densities for the shading lines was 
not sufficient to clearly distinguish between species. I would thus like 
to use different pattern (or texture) for this purpose. I have searched 
the various help lists on graphics in R but was unable to find something
