We use the Maass-Selberg relations for the Borel Eisenstein series to study integrals of functions of covolumes of flags in random lattices. This work can be seen as a generalization of Siegel's integration formula which says that a function on R^n, n>1 can be integrated by taking the expected value of the sum of the function over the lattice points of a random covolume one lattice in R^n. Since the Maass-Selberg relations hold for arbitrary split real lie groups, we are able to compute integration results for functions of flags of random symplectic lattices as well.
