I have try to use mtext but I cannot plot the description below the x-axis.

I have used
mtext(xLabels,side=1,at=apply(midPoints,2,mean)) and the text appears between the axis and the names.arg But I wont it below the args, above the axis-labels.

?mtext, also ?barplot since barplot returns midpoints of the bars.

also ?rep for setting up a vector of repeating values.

something like this:
xLabels<-c(rep("2003",4),rep("2005",11),rep("2006",5)) midPoints<-barplot(<your original statements here>) mtext(xLabels,side=1,at=apply(midPoints,2,mean))
