Bill Deluca

Research Fellow


Bill Deluca earned his PhD from the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts in 2012, where he studied high elevation breeding bird communities in the New Hampshire White Mountains. He received his MS from the Department of Biology at George Mason University in 2003, where he studied the influence of land use on the integrity of marsh bird communities of the Chesapeake Bay. He received his BS in 1998 from Plymouth State University. He is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Landscape Ecology Lab in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Bill currently works on the Designing Sustainable Landscapes (DSL) project as one of the principal team members. The overall purpose of this project is to assess the capability of current and potential future landscapes within the extent of the northeastern United States to provide integral ecosystems and suitable habitat for a suite of representative species, and provide guidance for strategic habitat conservation. Bill is primarily responsible for the representative species modeling and vegetation succession modeling.
