Urbain Audibert (1789 – 1846) was a French nurseryman. He was born in Tarascon on February 27, 1789, and died July 22, 1846. He made contributions to a few plant species descriptions.[1]

He collected plants in the vicinity of Montpellier with Alire Raffeneau Delile and Michel Félix Dunal, in Avignon with Esprit Requien and in the Pyrenees with George Bentham. He made herbarium specimens from plants cultivated in his nursery.[2]

The genus Audibertia (family Lamiaceae) is named in his honor.[3]
