Extract

It seems that in the past decade, there have been two paradigm shifts regarding star clusters. Firstly, the observational evidence for multiple stellar populations requires more extended and often complex star formation histories in star clusters. Secondly, theoretical models that form globular clusters in dwarf galaxies that are accreted at very early epochs (z > 5) are able to reproduce the age-metallicity relations observed. For the accretion scenario to be viable, globular clusters should also resemble the chemistry of at least some dwarf galaxies.
