Numerous publications that utilized the UNA collections appeared during Haynes' tenure. Haynes' research interests are in the systematics of aquatic vascular plants. He was senior author (with Barre Hellquist) or sole author of 13 families in the recent Flora of North America series. Haynes along with Lauritz Holm-Nielsen authored several families in the Flora Neo-Tropica series.
