annudder question
The naming is a weak point left over.

For example, if a invertebrate evolved a backbone would it be classified as a vertebrate?

Re: annudder question
Well, lots of non birds have wings and there are even birds that have things that can only generally be called "wings" (penguins, emus) so developing wings would not suggest at least to me "bird". However the term vertebrate does imply something that has a backbone.

There is no classification I know of that is "things that fly" comparable to the classification vertebrate and invertebrate.
