René Paul Raymond Capuron (1921 - 24 August 1971) was a Frenchbotanist. Capuron was responsible for an extensive amount of work on the tree flora of Madagascar. Taxa with the specific epithet of capuronii honor his name, an example being Podocarpus capuronii.
Takhtajania perrieri — the only extant representative of the family Winteraceae. Capuron was the first to rediscover the plant, following its last sighting by Henri Perrier de la Bathie, back in 1909.
