Carl Julius Meyer von Klinggräff (26 March 1809 in Klein Watkowitz in Kreis Stuhm – 1879) was a German botanist. He was an older brother to bryologist Hugo Erich Meyer von Klinggräff (1820–1902, H.Klinggr.).
From 1828 to 1832, he studied medicine and botany at the University of Königsberg, where he was influenced by Ernst Heinrich Friedrich Meyer. In 1832 he received his doctorate in medicine and surgery with the thesis "De carie vertebrarum". Following graduation, he travelled to his parents' home near Zagreb, and on the journey, conducted studies of Alpine flora and plants native to the Adriatic coast. He visited Fiume, Trieste, islands in the Gulf of Quarnero and made the acquaintanceship of botanists Bartolomeo Biasoletto, Friedrich Wilhelm Noë and Mutius von Tommasini.
In 1834 he returned to Prussia, settling in Marienwerder as a general practitioner. In 1836 he relocated to the town of Paleschken, from where he concentrated on botanical research. During his career, he made numerous trips throughout the Province of Prussia, and in 1844, took an extended journey to Austria, Switzerland and northern Italy.
