Here is an excellent page on plum biology from Oregon State University. It discusses a few of the more important North American plum varieties and briefly explains the difference between a plum grower and a prune grower. (It does make me wonder if there might be an opportunity to produce an orchard-based West Side Story sequel starring these two rival produce gangs).
By the way, you can order this beautiful poster here: http://res2.agr.ca/stjean/publication/volume/plum-prune_e.htm
