Actually not, e.g.
[matureTreeData.YEAR|classFFB:matureTreeData.ESTATE] means
P(matureTreeData.YEAR | classFFB, matureTreeData.ESTATE). So all
variables depend on classFB.

That is the best you can get from bnlearn at the moment - although it
is possible in theory to produce a graph + barplots plot from
Rgraphviz. I have never managed to make it work, though.
