             abstract = "The current Amazon landscape consists of heterogeneous mosaics 
                         formed by interactions between the original forest and productive 
                         activities. Recognizing and quantifying the characteristics of 
                         these landscapes is essential for understanding agricultural 
                         production chains, assessing the impact of policies, and in 
                         planning future actions. Our main objective was to construct the 
                         regionalization of agricultural production for Rond{\^o}nia State 
                         (Brazilian Amazon) at the municipal level. We adopted a decision 
                         tree approach, using land use maps derived from remote sensing 
                         data (PRODES and TerraClass) combined with socioeconomic data. The 
                         decision trees allowed us to allocate municipalities to one of 
                         five agricultural production systems: (i) coexistence of livestock 
                         production and intensive agriculture; (ii) semi-intensive beef and 
                         milk production; (iii) semi-intensive beef production; (iv) 
                         intensive beef and milk production, and; (v) intensive beef 
                         production. These production systems are, respectively, linked to 
                         mechanized agriculture (i), traditional cattle farming with low 
                         management, with (ii) or without (iii) a significant presence of 
                         dairy farming, and to more intensive livestock farming with (iv) 
                         or without (v) a significant presence of dairy farming. The 
                         municipalities and associated production systems were then 
                         characterized using a wide variety of quantitative metrics grouped 
                         into four dimensions: (i) agricultural production; (ii) economics; 
                         (iii) territorial configuration, and; (iv) social characteristics. 
                         We found that production systems linked to mechanized agriculture 
                         predominate in the south of the state, while intensive farming is 
                         mainly found in the center of the state. Semi-intensive livestock 
                         farming is mainly located close to the southwest frontier and in 
                         the north of the state, where human occupation of the territory is 
                         not fully consolidated. This distributional pattern reflects the 
                         origins of the agricultural production system of Rond{\^o}nia. 
                         Moreover, the characterization of the production systems provides 
                         insights into the pattern of occupation of the Amazon and the 
                         socioeconomic consequences of continuing agricultural expansion.",
