campbell's biology contains some info on the subject.
a more detailed version can probably found in a plant phisiology book, though i do not know the name of the exact book.

253$ ? That's way to much if you ask me...

Yes it is. But good books cost a lot. I wonder if it could be found on ebay?

Otherwise most botany texts only touch on this subject a little bit. Its worth it if this is someones major study.
