Abstract: An abstract eigenvalue comparison theorem is proven for $ {u_0}$-positive linear operators in a Banach space equippped with a cone of ``nonnegative'' elements. This result is then applied to certain linear differential equations of order 2n in order to obtain eigenvalue comparison theorems of an ``integral type."
