Ishida and Shiraishi [42] found elevated levels of saccharase but similar levels of amylase activities under flooded conditions in summer compared with those under drained conditions in winter in a paddy field, whereas Kanazawa [43] reported a slight decrease in [beta]-D-glucosidase and N-acetyl-[beta]-glucosaminidase activities during the flooded period when compared with other periods in a paddy field (in both studies, enzyme activities were measured at a single reference temperature, not at the field soil temperature).
