Abstract: We give a simple proof of the uniqueness, up to scalar multiples, of positive entire solutions of linear nonautonomous parabolic equations. The proof is based on a new result on exponential growth of certain expressions involving solutions of the adjoint equation. We also discuss the relation of this result to the exponential separation theorem.
