Excerpt from The Yautias, or Taniers, of Porto Rico

In View of the fact that no publication on this subject is thus far available, and in consideration of the growing interest in this, perhaps the oldest cultivated crop in the world, it is deemed expedient to offer the following notes. Moreover, until recently a deplorable confusion has existed between the taro, so common throughout the warmer regions of the Old World, and the tanier, which is distinctively a tropical American species. This remarkable, if not unique, case of confounding two of the most important food plants in the Tropics demands attention.
