one of the most important places of Aegean Region and Turkey in terms of
tourism and organic farming potential. According to the Corine land cover
classification (CLC), 17 land cover classes with different coverage areas are
defined in the island. In this study, 237 surface soil samples were taken from
9 different land cover classes with the largest coverage area, and the water
soluble major anion and cation contents of the soil samples were determined by
ion chromatography. Impacts of land cover classes on water-soluble chlorine,
ammonium and calcium contents in the soil were statistically significant (p<0.05).
On the other hand, effect of land cover classes on other water soluble ions
were not statistically significant (p
