What is the defining feature of a vertebrate?

A vertebrate is a creature with a backbone, or spine, so that would be the defining feature in most cases.

What are the major classes of vertebrates?

The five main classes of vertebrates are:

  • Mammals (Mammalia) - Mammals are warm-blooded; breathe air using lungs; have a covering of hair or skin; give birth to live young (except for the monotremes) and feed their young on mothers' milk
  • Birds (Aves) - Birds are warm-blooded; breathe air using lungs; have a covering of feathers; lay eggs
  • Reptiles (Reptilia) - Reptiles are cold-blooded; breathe air using lungs; have a covering of scaly skin; lay eggs or give live birth
  • Amphibians (Amphibia) - Amphibians are cold-blooded; adults breathe air using lungs but young amphibians use gills; have a covering of moist skin; most lay eggs but a few give live birth
  • Fish - which in turn are subdivided into Agnatha (jawless fish without scales, e.g. lampreys and hagfish); Chondrichthyes (sharks and rays, which have skeletons of cartilage rather than bone); and Osteichthyes (all the bony fish e.g. tuna, trout, whiting, etc.)- Fish are cold-blooded; breathe air using gills; have a covering of scales; lay eggs or give live birth
