Michael Charles Boulter (gebore 1942) is 'n professor in paleobiologie by die Natuurhistoriese Museum, Londen en die University of East London.

Boulter het plantkunde, geologie en chemie aan die University College London gestudeer. Hy het vanaf 1989 tot 2002 paleobiologie aan die University of East London onderrig. Hy was redakteur van die Palaeontologiese Vereniging (1975-81), sekretaris van die Internasionale Organisasie van Paleobotanie (1981-2002) en die Britse verteenwoordiger by die Internasionale Unie van Biologiese Wetenskappe. In 2002 het hy bekend geword vir sy boek "Extinction: Evolution and the End of Man" waar hy verduidelik het dat die mens nader aan uitsterwing kan wees as wat voorheen geglo was. Saam met Michael Benton en ongeveer 100 ander wetenskaplikes het hy die projek "Fossil Record 2", die wêreld se grootste databasis met fossieloorblyfsels van die afgelope 500 miljoen jaar, geloods.
