The intermediate pT region is ideal for studying hadronization and the
transition from soft to hard physics.  Quark mass and flavor are key
ingredients in hadronization as well as elucidating the details of energy
loss mechanisms in the hard sector.  For this reason, it is essential to
study a variety of different particle species, and PHENIX is ideally-suited
for many resonance decay analyses.  In this talk we present spectra and
nuclear modification factors of identified particles $\pi^0$, $\omega$,
$K_S$, $K^*$, and $\phi$ in p+Al, p+Au, d+Au, 3He+Au, Cu+Au, Au+Au, and U+U
collisions.  Implications for hadronization and energy loss will be
