By combining data in various wavelengths (IR, X-rays, Radio) we attempt to unlock the star forming properties of star clusters forming in diverse environments. Our goal is to understand those properties in the context of a) the presence or even the absence of massive stars, and b) the primordial structure of the cloud. We will put into consideration the possibility that the primordial structure of the clouds may play a role as significant or more significant than, for instance, triggering processes. Our methods attempt for a reconstruction of the history of star formation in cluster forming complexes, which we achieve from combining the properties of young stars and gas.
