Hello. This is my first post. I’m from Spain and I like this forum.
I was wondering what’s the answer of these two questions:
– Why do plants use polysaccharides as an energy storage instead of using lipids?
– What would happen to birds if they used glycogen molecules as an energy storage instead of using triglycerides?
Think about properties of respective storage forms.
Which is able to release more energy per weigth?
