  Amphibia (1878)
	The Urodela are Amphibia with elongated bodies and relatively short limbs, devoid of scales or pectoral plates, with numerous præ-caudal vertebræ;, and with amphicœlous, or opisthocœlous, vertebral centra.
–The pectoral arch in the Amphibia is distinguishable into a scapular, a coracoidal, and a præcoidal region, although the extent to which these parts of the primitive cartilaginous arch become separately ossified varies very much in the different members of the group.
On the other hand, it is the male Alytes obstetricans which twists the strings of eggs laid by the female round his hind-legs and, thus cross-gartered, retires into seclusion until the young are ready to be hatched, when he resorts to the water in which the tadpoles are to perform their further metamorphoses.

  Amphibia - LoveToKnow 1911
AMPHIBIA, a zoological term originally employed by Linnaeus to denote a class of the Animal Kingdom comprising crocodiles, lizards and salamanders, snakes and Caeciliae, tortoises and turtles and frogs; to which, in the later editions of the Systema N aturae he added some groups of fishes.
In this he was followed by Dr J. Gray; but Dumeril and Bibron in their great work,' and Dr Gunther in his Catalogue, in substance, adopted Brongniart's arrangement, the Batrachia being simply one of the four orders of the class Reptilia.
Huxley adopted Latreille's view of the distinctness of the Amphibia, as a class of the Vertebrata, co-ordinate with the Mammalia, A y es, Reptilia and Pisces; and the same arrangement was accepted by Gegenbaur and Haeckel.

 Biology - Amphibia, An Introduction
As the name (from Greek, amphibios, meaning 'having a double life') implies, the amphibia are adapted to move, feed and breathe equally well on land or in fresh water though, in most cases, they breed only in water.
All amphibia are vertebrates, that is, they have a vertebral column and a skull; they also have four limbs.
They are commonly referred to as ‘cold-blooded’ but this means that their temperature varies with that of the air or water.
