And this is normal, indeed, though not necessarily obvious at first sight. RegionPlot accepts the same options as Graphics, nevertheless it uses frames around the plot and disables any axis. (You can see the options and their settings by evaluating Options[RegionPlot], and see that Axes -> False). The axes being turned off, the option AxisLabel is without effect, regardless of its actual value. So to see the labels, we should use FrameLabel as in the following example: RegionPlot[y <= x^2, {x, -1, 1}, {y, 0, 1}, FrameLabel -> {"x", "y"}] Best regards, -- Jean-Marc
