Paul Hermann Wilhelm Taubert (12 August 1862 in Berlin – 1 January 1897 in Manáos) was a German botanist.
He studied botany in Berlin as a pupil of Ignatz Urban, and while a student, collected plants in Cyrenaica (1887). From 1889 to 1895 he was associated with the Botanical Museum in Berlin, working as a scientific assistant in 1893–95. Afterwards, he embarked on a botanical expedition to Brazil, where he conducted botanical investigations in the states of Pernambuco, Ceará, Piauí, Maranhão and Amazonas. He died in Manáos on 1 January 1897 (age 34).
He was the taxonomic authority of many plant species. In 1893 Karl Moritz Schumann named the plant genus Taubertia (family Menispermaceae) in his honor.
