The all sky catalogue of clusters of galaxies prepared by Abell,Corwin and Olowin is now completed and the first catalogue of distant clusters by Gunn,Hoessel and Oke has been published. I stress, in relation to such catalogues, the need of using numerical simulations to estimate their completeness, understand the observations and achieve unbiased informations on cosmology and cluster evolution as a function of cosmic time. It is suggested that an early interaction between the galaxies and the intracluster medium may enhance star formation.
