Larry Martin (December 8, 1943 - March 9, 2013) was an American vertebrate paleontologist and curator of the Natural History Museum and Biodiversity Research Center at the University of Kansas.[1] Among Martin's work is research on the Triassic reptile Longisquama and theropod dinosaur (or fossil bird) Caudipteryx. According to the University of Kansas, he "has been a leading opponent of the theory that birds are 'living dinosaurs.'" He has also appeared in a few television documentaries about dinosaurs, including Jurassic Fight Club.

He died of cancer at the age of 69 on March 9, 2013, after a long battle with the disease.
