Partial Shading by Solar Panels Delays Bloom, Increases Floral Abundance During the Late‑season for Pollinators in a Dryland, Agrivoltaic Ecosystem

The article investigates the effects of solar arrays on plant composition, bloom timing and foraging behavior of pollinators from June to September (after peak bloom) in full shade plots and partial shade plots under solar panels as well as in full sun plots (controls) outside of the solar panels.
