Samuel Schuyler Bowser (born January 16, 1957) is an American biologist specializing in the physiological ecology and evolution of protists, especially the Foraminifera. He has been a steadfast advocate of science education, and in 2006 was honored by the Science Teachers Association of New York for exceptional contributions to K-12 science education. He advocates art/science collaborations and is involved in projects with artist Claire Beynon, musician Henry Kaiser, and filmmaker Werner Herzog.
Sam Bowser has led 20 research expeditions to Antarctica. His last year visiting Antarctica was 2016. A new genus of Foraminifera, Bowseria spp., was named "in honor of Dr. Sam Bowser (USA), a protistologist and polar explorer, who has spent many years studying Antarctic monothalamous foraminifera and contributed immensely to our knowledge of their biology, ecology and diversity." Sinniger et al. (2008) Pol. Polar Res. 29:5-18. In 2005, Bowser Valley, lying East of Crawford Valley in St. Johns Range, Victoria Land, was named by US-ACAN in recognition of his research in Antarctica. He works at the Wadsworth Center in Albany, New York.
