Hello all

I am a newbie to R plotting maps. I am trying to plot over a world map a layer of Biogeochemical provinces (BGCP) by A.R. Longhurst. Each ocean region unfortunately are quite irregular in shape (not perfect squares). In GIS this layer of ocean provinces would be a layer of polygons, which I am assuming it cannot be plotted with R.

I was wondering If anybody has encounter this problem before, to plot a GIS layer of polygons into a map in R.

*Thanks a lot
