One paper comes immediately to mind--Tsukaya, Tsuge, and Uchimiya. 1994. 
Planta 195:309-312. In that paper, if I remember correctly, they saw 
that cell size increased dramatically, and that cell number remained 
_nearly_ constant. Another paper by the same three will apparently be 
in the next (April) issue of Development. (The abstract is on the 
Development WWW page: http://www.gold.net/users/ag64/devindex.htm.) Also,
Tsukaya wrote a review which appeared in J. Plant. Res. 1995. 108:407-416.

I hope this helps,
Mike
