The outcome is: discuss the potential impact of the use of reproduction technologies on the genetic diversity of species, using a named example of a plant and an animal that have been genetically altered.
Does 'reproduction technologies' include transgenic species or is it just artificial insemination/pollination and cloning?

Most transgenics species are clones and cloning is a reproductive technology, so yes. But I don't think it is alone. It's fine to talk about it if you relate the fact that your transgenics species are produced as clones.

for eg. Bt cotton is a transgenics species (with the gene that codes for the toxin found in Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria) and is cloned by grafting techniques + planting cuttings.
for eg. Salmon with the bovine growth hormone are clones

Reproductive tech does not encompass transgenics, only cloning, artificial insemination and pollination
