We demonstrate synchronization transition in a large ensemble of non-identical chaotic oscillators, globally coupled via the mean field. We show that this coherent behaviour is due to synchronization of phases of these oscillators, while their amplitudes remain chaotic. Two types of transition, depending on the phase coherence properties of the individual systems, are described.
