A class of strongly coupled parabolic systems is investigated. Sufficient conditions on the structure of the systems are found to assure that weak solutions are bounded and that they are Hölder continuous. Together, these results give the global existence of solutions. The theory is then applied to the general Shigesada–Kawasaki–Teramoto model in population dynamics.
