Jean Baptiste François René Koehler (7 March 1860, Saint-Dié – 19 April 1931, Lyon) was a French zoologist best known for his research of echinoderms.

He studied medicine and zoology in Nancy. In 1889 he became a member of the faculty of sciences in Lyon, where in 1894, he attained the chair of zoology.[1] In 1911 he was selected as president of the Société zoologique de France.[2]

In 1988 the genus Koehleria (Cherbonnier) of the family Cucumariidae was named in his honor.[3] Also, he is commemorated by organisms with the specific epithet of koehleri.[2]
