Is the massive Amazon forest a CO2 sink, a source or is it in equilibrium?

There is a large uncertainty in carbon fluxes estimates for the tropics as a whole and in particular for the Amazon region in South America, bringing the attention to the lack of information to call the region a carbon source or sink. The production of scientific consistent and long term data series for the region is a process that has to advance step by step.
