Abstract: We study the number of fixed points of the area preserving
Poincaré map $ P$ associated to periodic in time ODE's on two-manifolds. We prove the fixed point index formula for the Poincaré map based on the method of periodic isolating segments. As the application we show that the $ 1$-periodic hamiltonian planar system

$\displaystyle \dot {z}=\overline {z}^n+e^{2\pi i t}\overline {z}^l $

has at least $ n+1$ non-zero $ 1$-periodic solutions provided that $ l>n\geq 1$.
