What is the Hardy Weinberg Principle?

The Harvey Weinberg principle states this-‘in bigger populations of a species, inheritance can not change the frequencies of the different alleles’. What this means in laypersons language is that some genetic traits or series of genes is less likely to alter if there are more members of that species. For instance, giraffes have a very distinct coat, and it’s unlikely to change as there have been thousands and thousands of giraffes, so mutations are less likely to occur.
