Facing decline in recent years, the study found that four UK bumblebee species showed signs of stress in increasingly hotter and wetter conditions caused by changes in climate.
While new habitats for vulnerable pollinators are dwindling, if land owners allow meadows to grow around the installed solar panels, these areas will become thriving pollinator habitats, researchers said.
"Will the Biden administration fix this problem, or will it allow the EPA to continue its past practice of ignoring the real-world harms of pesticides?"
"Our results show that we face a future with many less bumble bees and much less diversity, both in the outdoors and on our plates."
Western bumblebees remain in steep decline, but biologists believe they may be evolving to outwit a deadly parasite.
