[R] labels outside plotting region

I've just started R, and I'm getting a bit mad using it. I've managed to
produce a barplot with the labels for the ytick marks placed
horizontally (perpendicular to the y-axis) usiing par(las=1). The
problem is that most of my labels are in part beyond the plotting area
because they are rather long (e.g. "H. sapiens", "D. melanogaster" ...).

What is the easiest way to solve this problem, can I (somehow) re-scale
the x-extension and x-shift the plot to get more space to the left of
the visible area?

	thanks a lot for help,
