- This paper explores the factors contributing to the expansion of small-scale farming, ranching, logging, mining, and subsistence extraction as land use choices in Rondonia, Brazil. As a framework, these factors are grouped into the broad descriptive categories of environmental, social, political, and economic. Through a greater understanding of forces determining the predominance of small-scale farming, ranching, logging, mining, and subsistence extraction as types of land use in Rondonia, the conditions necessary for minimizing environmental degradation are illuminated.
