Have a look at 

You need to have par(xpd = TRUE) and then use par("usr") to get the 
coordinates for the edges of the plot. Also make sure you have enough 
space around the plot to put the legend. For that, have a look at par(oma) 
or par(mar) etc.

I am trying to put legends underneath the plot (in the outer margins). Is
there an easy way to do this. I have been tinkering with split..screen but
I could not make it work.

Thank in advance
