Justus Ferdinand Poggenburg I (1840–1893) was an American botanist.[1][2]

Together with Nathaniel Lord Britton, Emerson Ellick Sterns and three others, Poggenburg was the author of a catalogue of plants of the New York region that applied the principle of priority more strictly than had been done before, and so caused a rift between American and European botanists.[3]

The standard author abbreviation for Poggenburg when citing a botanical name is Poggenb.,[1] and Poggenburg is also included alongside Britton and Sterns in the joint abbreviation "B.S.P.".[3][2]
