We compute relative abundances of strange hadronic particles produced in highly excited nuclear matter as functions of temperature and baryo-chemical potential. Quantitative predictions are made for the particle multiplicity ratios: 〈nK+〉/〈nK-〉, 〈nK+〉/〈nΛ〉, 〈nK-〉/ 〈nΛ〉, 〈nΛ〉/〈nΛ-〉 Possible measurements of baryo-chemical potential is described. Our results are quantitatively compatible with present experimental data obtained in nuclear collisions.
