The article explains how to integrate information originated from different studies in such practical situation. A family of statistical methods that are developed especially for combining of various studies leading the same objectives are referred to as metaanalysis. Metaanalysis is a large family of sophisticated methods that go far beyond the wellknown classical methods based on classical correlation or regression analysis [1]. It is worth to promote these methods for environmental applications due to their simplicity and high efficiency. Due to small length of the article it was not possible to present in it detailed example of using meta-analysis for environmental applications. This will be done during conference presentation. Instead, the article contains carefully selected literature, related to environmental and related studies [2-5, 8-10, 15, 19]. (fragment of text)
