Devolution

 My dictionary gives a definition to this term in such a way as to imply 
it is a working concept in biology:
    
    DEVOLUTION
    Biology. Degeneration as distinguished from evolution.

 Is this term an often-employed construct or model in biology? And does 
it imply that evolution means a kind of progress?
 Thanks for any help you can provide.
