Abstract: We consider the predator-prey system with a fairly general functional response of Holling type and give a necessary and sufficient condition under which this system has exactly one stable limit cycle. Our result extends previous results and is an answer to a conjecture which was recently presented by Sugie, Miyamoto and Morino.
