Conservation Land Management (CLM) is a quarterly magazine, widely regarded as essential reading for all who are involved in land management for nature conservation, across the British Isles.
Every aspect of CLM is designed for those involved in managing land to achieve conservation priorities. Articles focus on a wide range of topics, using up-to-date case studies to support practical solutions. Additional information, including costings, materials and equipment, is presented in easy-to-follow boxes and diagrams.
Each issue of CLM contains a range of regular features, including events listings, new products and conference and event reports and topical comment, and is illustrated throughout with top quality colour illustrations.
Originally published by Natural England, CLM has been in continuous quarterly publication for 25 years – first as enact (1993-2003) and since then as CLM (see history for more). CLM was acquired by NHBS, the conservation, natural history and ecology book and equipment company, in 2016, along with British Wildlife magazine.
As from the Spring 2018 issue (Volume 16:1) CLM is now published in the same format (195 x 165mm) as British Wildlife, in keeping with its status as a ‘sister’ publication. The magazine has also been redesigned, and has more content: now 44-pages.
Some places and themes covered by CLM in recent issues have included: separate articles on conservation management in Shropshire's Stiperstones Hills, the Essex coast, and Dorset Heaths; a case study from Croft Castle, Herefordshire on restoring wood pasture; analysis of Chalara dieback of ash and the implications for woodland management; tackling invasive plants on the River Dee; an account of ‘daylighting’ lost urban rivers; how to take climate change into account in the management of nature reserves; an appraisal of agri-environment schemes and farmland birds; and an article on the often overlooked role of soils in natural flood management.
CLM is only available on subscription, from just £18 a year. To subscribe or renew see our subscription page.
