Maximum immobilization of N after addition of glucose and mineral N to a soil occurred after a comparatively short incubation period irrespective of temperature (10-40 degrees C). With a C/N ratio of 8, N immobilization at 40, 30, 20 and 10 degrees C reached a maximum at incubation periods of 28h, 48h, 3 days and 5 days respectively. Temperature had little effect on the apparent amount of maximum immobilization.
