Abstract: Star clusters are found in ~40% of the Local Group galaxies. Their properties are reviewed. The impact of galaxy environment on the evolution and survival of star clusters is discussed. Possible evidence for cluster formation triggered by galaxy interactions, gradients in cluster size, metallicity and stellar content with galactocentric radius and variations as a function of galaxy type are briefly summarized.
