Robert Oliver Cunningham (27 March 1841 - 1918) was a Scottish naturalist.
In January 1866 he was appointed Professor of Natural History in the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, but resigned in June in consequence of being appointed by the Admiralty upon the recommendation of Joseph Dalton Hooker, to collect plants as naturalist on board HMS Nassau under the command of Richard Charles Mayne, then commissioned for the survey of the Straits of Magellan and the west coast of Patagonia. This voyage started on 24 August 1866 from the Thames, and on 18 February 1867 she arrived in Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands to coal, departing again on 2 March, much to Cunningham's regret.
