I was fooling around with including a p-value and R2 value on a plot I was putting together, and found myself quickly descending into the world of R graphics esoterica. I wanted to be able to include the values on the fly using values extracted from a linear model summary object, and I wanted to use the proper italics and superscripts for the text.

The plot is a comparison of 10 years of daily maximum body temperatures of a modeled littorine snail sitting on a rock with its foot out on the rock or withdrawn into the shell. The original data are here: dailymax_runs139_169.
The code below will open the data file, create the ggplot2 figure, and save the output …
