1.Campos rupestres is an extremely phosphorus (P)‐impoverished rocky ecosystem in Brazil. Velloziaceae is an important plant family in this environment, and some species colonize exposed quartzite rock. However, we know virtually nothing about their root development and nutrient acquisition within the rock outcrops and their possible role in rock weathering and landscape formation. 2.We tested the hypothesis that Velloziaceae dissolve P from the rock, enhancing rock‐weathering. The study was carried out with two Barbacenia species...
