We have shown that if the Toeplitz operator Tϕ on the Bergman space La2(𝔻) belongs to the Schatten class Sp,1p<, then ϕ˜Lp(𝔻,dλ), where ϕ˜ is the Berezin transform of ϕ,dλ(z)=dA(z)/(1|z|2)2, and dA(z) is the normalized area measure on the open unit disk 𝔻. Further, if ϕLp(𝔻,dλ) then ϕ˜Lp(𝔻,dλ) and TϕSp. For certain subclasses of L(𝔻), necessary and sufficient conditions characterizing Schatten class Toeplitz operators are also obtained.
