We study to what extent a measurement of the [Formula Presented] spectra for hadrons and their resonances can resolve ambiguities in the statistical model description of particle production. We describe in a quantitative analysis how physical assumptions about the freeze-out geometry and dynamics influence the particle spectra. Considering ratios of [Formula Presented] distribution of resonance-particle ratios (such as [Formula Presented] we observe significant sensitivity to fireball freeze-out geometry and flow dynamics.
