The class Amphibia or Amphibians is part of the subphylum Vertebrata (Vertebrates). Modern-day representatives of this class are frogs, toads and salamanders. In the Devonian period, amphibians were one of the first groups of vertebrates to live on land. They evolved from a group of sarcopterygians or lobe-finned fish.
Amphibians usually have an aquatic or semi-aquatic lifestyle and are bound to water for the purpose of reproduction.
