This paper deals with the question of uniqueness of limit cycles in predator-prey systems of Gause type. By utilizing several transformations, these systems are reduced to a generalized Lienard system as discussed by Cherkas and Zhilevich and by Zhang. As a consequence, criteria for the uniqueness of limit cycles are derived, which include results of Cheng and is related to results in Liou and Cheng. Several examples are given to illustrate our results.
