This dissertation examines the phenomenology of statistical hadronization at ultrarelativistic energies. We start with an overview of current experimental and theoretical issues in Relativistic heavy ion physics. We then introduce and discuss statistical hadronization, showing how it gives a description of particle abundances and spectra through covariance and entropy maximization.
