Quantum coherence and entanglement in an extended interacting system where energy levels are nondegenerate and coupled to a dissipative environment is a common occurrence in nature, like in photosynthetic reaction systems and conjugated polymers. The temperature dependence of quantum coherence in a trimer complex (first three subunits of the Fenna-Matthews-Olson complex) is studied using a temperature dependent quantum stochastic Liouville equation. In the non-Markovian limit, the lowering of temperature induces long-lasting quantum coherence that, in turn, leads to delocalization, whose length grows. The entanglement and coherence length determine the nature of the dynamic localization.
