We analyse the difference in the energy behaviour of hadron multiplicities associated withe+e events induced by light and heavy quarks in the framework of two approaches: the so-called Naïve Model and the QCD-motivated one. Expectations of both approaches are presented in comparison with the existing data (LEP, SLC).
