drop size and rain

Hello everyone!
I have to work out a presentation about stratiform and convective rain. Now I found the following in one paper: The drops in stratiform rain are larger than in convective rain for the same rain rate. Therefore the reflectivity, which a radar gets, is higher for stratiform events than for convective ones, if the rain rate is the same.
Why it is so? Does someone know where to find more information about this?

Thanks a lot!
