Carl Otto Robert Peter Paul Graebner (29 June 1871, Aplerbeck – 6 February 1933, Berlin) was a German botanist.

In 1895 he obtained his doctorate in Berlin, successively working as an assistant and then as curator (1904) at the botanical gardens. During the 1890s he performed botanical investigations in Jerichower Land and Vorharz with Paul Ascherson (1834–1913).[1]

He later became a professor at the Botanical Garden and Museum in Berlin-Dahlem, from where he conducted floristic and phytogeographical research.[2]
