This book covers such plants with edible modified storage subterranean stems (corms, rhizomes, stem tubers) and unmodified subterranean stem stolons, above ground swollen stems and hypocotyls,  storage roots (tap root, lateral roots,  root tubers), and bulbs, that are eaten as conventional or functional food  as vegetables and spices,  as herbal teas, and may provide a source of food additive or neutraceuticals.
