    Résumé

    Cameras and other optical instruments are increasingly being used as cheap, convenient and reliable tools for surveillance and monitoring. This paper describes (1) the kinds of observations and measurements relevant to CEMP that can be obtained from an automated camera system specifically developed for use in the extreme conditions of Antarctica, (2) a preliminary assessment of the utility of cameras for measuring Adélie penguin breeding success, and (3) how cameras are currently being used to expand the spatial extent of Adélie penguin monitoring, and to extend monitoring to additional land-based breeding species, in east Antarctica.
