How does Tempo affect the polyrhythmic content?

Depending on the tempo of the song, the options available will vary, as not all note Groupings or Ratios work in all tempos. Just as the swing feel changes in regards to song tempo, so do the rhythmic phrases that musicians tend to use. In certain tempos, either too fast or too slow, some rhythms feel and sound unnatural and out of place, so they are not available at those tempos.
