In this paper we give, as far as we know, the first method to detect non-algebraic invariant curves for polynomial planar vector fields. This approach is based on the existence of a generalized cofactor for such curves. As an application of this algorithmic method we give some Lotka-Volterra systems with non-algebraic invariant curves.
