The 'chromosome map' diagram (ChM) proved a successful tool to identify and characterize multiple populations (MPs) in 59 Galactic globular clusters (GCs). Here, we construct ChMs for 11 GCs of both Magellanic Clouds (MCs) and with different ages to compare MPs in Galactic and extragalactic environments, and explore whether this phenomenon is universal through "place" and "time". MPs are detected in five clusters. The fractions of 1G stars, ranging from ∼50 per cent to >80 per cent, are...[Show more]
