Does anyone know anything about the effect of temperature on respiration and why higher temperatures lead to a greater rate of respiration? Im doing an investigation to try to prove that at higher temperatures maggots wriggle more :roll: , due to a higher rate of respiration.

Any help would be really appreciated! :D

As temperature rises , chemical and enzymatic reactions in the cell proceed at more rapid rates, and growth becomes faster. When high cardinal temperature is reached, the proteins denature and growth ceases.
