The main purpose of this article is considering the persistence non-autonomous Lotka-Volterra system with predator-prey ratio-dependence and density dependence. We get the sufficient conditions of persistence of system, further have the necessary conditions, also the uniform persistence condition, which can be easily checked for the model is obtained.
