Three-jet events produced in e+e- annihilations are used to provide comparisons between quark and gluon jets. Differences between quark-induced and gluon-induced jets are observed. Quark jets tend to have a more tightly collimated structure than gluon jets, which is reflected in the concentration of a larger fraction of the jets energy near the jet axis.
