Emil Friedrich August Walter (or Walther) Migula (born 1863 in Zyrowa, Prussia (present-day Poland); died 1938 in Eisenach, Germany) was a German botanist.

In 1890, he was habilitated for botany at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, where he spent several years as a professor. At Karlsruhe, he also worked in the bacteriology department of the Food Research Institute. He was Professor of Botany at the research academy at Eisenach.

Between 1892 and 1933 Migula issued exsiccata series, among them ''Kryptogamae Germaniae, Austriae et Helvetiae exsiccatae''. He is remembered for describing the bacterial genus ''Pseudomonas'', and for publication of ''Kryptogamen-Flora von Deutschland, Deutsch-Österreich und der Schweiz'' [Cryptogamic Flora of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland], a work connected with Otto Wilhelm Thomé's ''Flora von Deutschland'' [Plants of Germany].
