Low Carbon and Lancaster University launch first-of-its-kind study to influence behaviour of queen bees at solar sites, boosting biodiversity


The importance of bees to our environment and natural ecosystems cannot be overstated. Alongside other insect pollinators, bees pollinate 87 per cent of all plant species, and about 75 per cent of crop species. The latest estimate by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) estimates that bees directly contribute to the equivalent of more than £500 million a year to the UK economy.

But as climate change takes hold and global temperatures rise, the bee population is in decline. Not only does this threaten biodiversity and our environment – natural vegetation is known to offset carbon emissions – but bees are also crucial to mitigating the impacts of climate change.
