Globular cluster systems (GCSs) are vital tools for investigating the violent star formation histories of their host galaxies. This violence could e.g. have been triggered by galaxy interactions or mergers. The basic observational properties of a GCS are its luminosity function and color distributions (number of clusters per luminosity resp. color bin).
