Osborne Morton (1945, Belfast, Noord-Ierland) is 'n voormalige fikoloog verbonde aan die Ulster Museum. Morton het in 2007 bedank.

Morton is opgelei in Belfast en by Trinity College, Dublin, waar hy plantkunde onder Professor D.A. Webb studeer het. Sy finalejaarstesis het navorsing oor mariene alge ingesluit, en sy belangstelling in seewier het ontwikkel uit kinderjarenuuskierigheid oor die see. Nadat hy in 1969 aan Trinity gegradueer het, studeer hy aan die Universiteit van Wallis en behaal hy 'n Diploma in Mariene Biologie. Sy eerste pos was as onderwysbeampte in Doncaster Museum. Sy belangstelling in mariene alge is egter aktief gehandhaaf en hy het in 1975 teruggekeer na Belfast as Navorsingsassistent, en later Kurator van Plantkunde, met spesiale verantwoordelikheid vir die alge en ligene by die Ulster Museum.
