We consider here a general Lotka-Volterra type n-dimensional periodic functional differential system. Sufficient conditions for the existence, uniqueness and global asymptotic stability of periodic solutions are established by combining the theory of monotone flow generated by FDEs, Horn’s asymptotic fixed point theorem and linearized stability analysis. These conditions improve and generalize the recent ones obtained by Freedman and Wu (1992) for scalar equations. We also present a nontrivial application of our results to a delayed nonautonomous predator-prey system.
