Re: [R] print to .jpeg

How about using paste() inside the jpeg() function to append a '.jpg' to the end of your species name?
See the change below. I also added a dev.off() to close the newly created jpeg.

species.name="CussoniaHolstii"
dia<-10:100
biomass = -21.4863 + 0.5797 * (dia ^ 2)
biomass
jpeg(paste(species.name, '.jpg', sep = '') plot (biomass, main=species.name, xlab="dbh in cm", ylab="biomass in kg") dev.off()
