We investigate the blow-up properties of the positive solutions to a
quasilinear parabolic system with nonlocal boundary condition. We first give the criteria
for finite time blowup or global existence, which shows the important influence of nonlocal boundary. And then we establish the precise blow-up rate estimate. These
extend the resent results of Wang et al. (2009), which considered the special case , and Wang et al. (2007), which studied the single equation.
