Sweet Potatoes and Yams

Is there any difference between Sweet Potato Vine - Batata - with heart-shaped leaves and purple to black skin and the vine from the edible tuberous root of the sweet potato?

Probably not. I have included two web links to help you make sure. See the related links below. There is also a vine called Potato Vine which is a member of the Solanum family and it is toxic, as are the vines of the sweet potato.
