Respiration by plants and microorganisms is primarily responsible for mediating carbon exchanges between
the biosphere and atmosphere. Climate warming has the potential to influence the activity of these organisms,
regulating exchanges between carbon pools. Physiological ‘down-regulation’ of warm-adapted species
(acclimation) could ameliorate the predicted respiratory losses of soil carbon under climate change scenarios,

Elevated temperatures and carbon dioxide concentrations- effects on selected microbial activities

Here is the Abstract from this paper:
Human activities have increased greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. Research has demonstrated this increased concentration will affect our climate
