The analysis of habitat factors for the distribution of landuse-landcover (LULC) which is based on the analysis of Topographic Habitat Characteristics (THC), is important to understand the process of island ecology. The relationships between LULC, especially relative abundances of dominant tree covers and THC were examined in the Kapidag Peninsula in order to understand the spatial heterogeneity of LULC. Dominant tree covers and LULC patch mosaics were obtained from Turkish General Directory of Forestry (GDF) by using categorical dataSeveral THC, indicating temperature and moisture distribution, exposure to wind etc., were computed by a 15 m resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM). Simple chi-square test and contingency tables were used to explore the connections between LULC types and THC. Landform description has long been recognized essential for understanding vegetation distribution in the peninsula. In this study, the lack of information on the human dimension is the reason of some uncertainties in interpreting the spatial patterns of vegetation, in the peninsula.
