[R] color vectors other than gray()

I'm trying to create a graph where different cells of a grid (a shapefile) will be painted with a color share scale, where the most easy way is to use gray().

Can I somehow get a vector (gradient) of colors, a vector of colors with other methods but gray()?

I'm doing this until now  

  quad_N_sp <-
merge(sp_dist[sp_dist$sp==splist[i],],grelha_ID,by.x="quad",by.y="quadricula ",all.y=T,)

  quad_N_sp$x[is.na(quad_N_sp$x)] <- 0

  quad_N_sp <- quad_N_sp[order(quad_N_sp$id),]

  paleta <- gray(1-(quad_N_sp$x)/max(quad_N_sp$x)) #! Tons de cinzento


  plot(grelha,ol="grey80", #! Gráfico com grelha de amostragem e gradiente de abundância





  xlab="Coord X",

  ylab="Coord Y",

  main=paste("Espécie: ",splist[i]),



  col_lab <- c(max(quad_N_sp$x),min(quad_N_sp$x)) #! Vector com os limites min e max do N de indivíduos observados  

color.legend(248000,120000,250000,128000,col_lab,sort(unique(paleta)),gradie nt="y",cex=0.6)#! Legenda

  text(245300,130500,"Nº Indivíduos",cex=0.6)


I'd like to replace the grey shade by other colors.  

Thanks in advance
