Abstract: A study of statistically significant young stellar populations, in different evolutionary stages and astrophysical environments, can provide fundamental tests for theories of disk and planet formation. We are presently conducting a systematic broadband infrared wavelength study of ten young clusters of different ages in order to compare their circumstellar disk frequency. We report our results of JHK photometry of RCW38, NGC2316 and NGC2547.
