Content
Timber logging in the Amazon rainforest is controversial. Smallholders living in the Amazon traditionally depend on forest resources for their livelihood. Many regulations for logging exist aimed at these smallholders. Often these regulations lead to unexpected outcomes as many institutional factors affect their forest practices.

This research asks the questions:
1. What are the institutional influences on smallholder forestry?
2. How do smallholders respond to the institutional influences?

Through a qualitative study including 6 cases in the Amazon region of Bolivia and Ecuador, this research finds that:

1. Institutions are subject to processes of institutional bricolage leading to a diversity of responses
2. Institutions are reshaped and reconstructed in order to better fit them in the daily lives of smallholders.
3. Institutional bricolage processes have both positive and negative effects on sustainable forest management.
