In our recent study, published in New Phytologist, we provide the first demonstration of calcium‐enhanced phosphorus toxicity across multiple Proteaceae species. We surmise that this phenomenon might partially explain the calcifuge habit of most Proteaceae and is therefore critical for the management of this iconic Australian family. This study represents a major advance towards an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of phosphorus toxicity and its role in the distribution of Proteaceae.
