Bilberries and blueberries are not actually the same. They are both from the same 'genus', which is the vaccinium family, but the wild 'lowbush' bilberry is vaccinium myrtillus whereas the cultivated highbush blueberry is usually vaccinium cyanococcus. Wiki has quite a comprehensive section about the various 'vacciniums' if you look up 'blueberry', but my mum's book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Blueberries-Cranberries-Vacciniums-Jennifer-Trehane/dp/1604690720/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1246295285&sr=8-1 is also an excellent guide ;-)
