Clustering is a relatively widespread phenomenom which takes on many guises across the nuclear landscape. Selected topics concerning the study of halo systems and clustering in light, neutron-rich nuclei are discussed here through illustrative examples taken from the Be isotopic chain. The production and detection of multineutron clusters is also briefly presented.
