What affect do dead plants have on water?

They add N, P, and other assorted organics (like humic and tannic acids) to the water. In large amounts, their decay will decrease oxygen in the water.

If it is just a few dead plants, you probably won't notice anything different. A lot of plants would have to be dead for you to actually start seeing an effect.
