polysaccharides are used in living things for structure and storage. In plants, cellulose give structure to the cell walls, as does chitin in fungi and peptidoglycan in bacteria. All these carbohydrates are polysaccharides. In animals, glycogen ( branched glucose chains) is used as storage of energy and in plants starch performs the same job. Polysaccharides are important to living things because a polysaccharide is just another way to store and hold glucose, which is the only thing that can provide energy to living organisms. It is just another very important alternative to store energy in living things.
