Short summary
Simple microbial decomposition models show distinct responses to warming under different assumptions of how complex organic matter is broken down. If there are limitations other than microbial enzyme availability, the short-term respiration response is dampened and the decomposition dynamics resemble traditional first-order decay used in most biogeochemistry models. Further, microbial adjustment to respiratory cost for enzyme production reduces overall sensitivity to temperature.
