Abstract

By comparison with the Lotka-Volterra system, we obtain a theorem concerning the nonuniqueness of limit cycles of a Gause–type predator-prey system. The method we develope here can be generalized. Moreover, we disprove a conjecture posed by H.I. Freedman by constructing an example of a system with a strictly concave down prey isocline which has at least three limit cycles.
