Box plots help to identify the outliers in data, and are useful for comparing distributions. As per Wikipedia, Box and whisker plots are uniform in their use of the box: the bottom and top of the box are always the first and third quartiles, and the band inside the box is always the second quartile (the median).
The lines extending from the box are the whiskers. Any data not included between the whiskers is an outlier.
